“If you’re willing to put in the effort, the reward is pretty spectacular.”

“As the Manager of Training and Development for my organization, I wanted to show others in the business that pursuing advanced education while working was possible and supported by the company.I am an advocate for ongoing education, and personally, I wanted to pursue learning opportunities beyond my undergraduate degree. I chose the Master of Business Administration in Executive Management at Royal Roads University to broaden my experience and knowledge in business and learn about topics outside of my specific field.

Almost all of the courses within the MBA program have directly impacted my work. I was challenged and forced to stretch outside my comfort zones, while at the same time, the experience was rewarding, humbling, and inspiring. The courses and content are general enough that they can be applied to many different work settings and industries, and specific enough that I am confident that my new practices, tools, and philosophies can be applied directly to my day-to-day role.

The program has given me a greater understanding of my organization, and has shone a light on new opportunities for me to explore beyond my specific department, opening doors to new areas of the business for me to impact.”
