I would describe the experience as intense, exhilarating and unforgettable...an accomplishment of which I am very proud. The Queen’s MBA enabled me to move into a new sector and the skills I acquired through the program led to a promotion shortly after joining the CPP Investment Board. I enjoyed the team-based approach because it allowed me to learn from teammates while contributing to their experience. I value the memories of working with my team and will always be grateful for what I learned from them. The academic exchange allowed me to spend a significant amount of time immersed in one of the world’s key economies while gaining a very unique perspective on Chinese culture. ”
