What pushed you to go to the Rowe School of Business?
As I completed my Business Administration degree at Memorial University of Newfoundland, I knew that marketing was my passion, but I wanted to learn more. I began researching graduate programs and kept coming back to the Corporate Residency MBA. I was enticed by the fact that the program was new and innovative, and it catered to young professionals who were looking to build knowledge and experience through the eight-month internship.
What was the most challenging part of the CRMBA program?
Much like any career, the CRMBA program is fast-paced and demanding. Some of the classes are quite challenging and you have to juggle a number of priorities at any given time. Combine that with dedicated professors and classmates from a variety of backgrounds, and it is fair to say that you are always challenged to think critically and in different ways.
How is a career at Eastlink a perfect fit for you?
Working at Eastlink has allowed me to gain a vast amount of marketing experience in a very short period of time. I love the fact that I'm constantly learning and have been given so many opportunities to add great value so early in my career. I also love that I get to work in my chosen field and remain in Halifax.
