Have you ever thought of pursuing an MBA degree or wondered if having one would help? Are you planning out what your next career move will be? If so, then this information session may be for you.
Hosted by Graham Sue, Assistant Director of Graduate Recruitment & Admissions at the Schulich School of Business, this information session will answer some of the common questions that engineers typically have when deciding whether an MBA is right for them.
Topics that will be covered include:
- Goal Setting
- Why pursue an MBA? Do you really need an MBA to succeed?
- When is the right time to pursue an MBA?
- How does an MBA differ from an engineering degree?
- What does the MBA actually teach you and what do you get in return?
An open Q&A period will end the session.
Graham Sue is the Assistant Director of Graduate Recruitment & Admissions at the Schulich School of Business. After completing his undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Toronto in 2003, he worked as an engineer at several manufacturing companies including Celestica, ABC Group, and General Motors.
In the fall of 2007, Graham decided that a career shift was in order. He decided to enroll in the Full-Time MBA program at the Schulich School of Business, which is where he discovered his passion for marketing and strategy. Shortly after completing his MBA, he went on to work at BMW Canada in their Marketing department, and then pursued his entrepreneurial goals by starting a successful retail business that ended with three locations around the Greater Toronto Area before being sold to a competitor.
Now in the higher education industry, Graham has a diverse set of experience, and he feels that the combination of his engineering degree with an MBA was key to providing him with his very unique opportunities.
Friends are welcome and networking encouraged!
