“ I chose Brock for their fast-track to CPA. Since Brock is CPA accredited, it matches perfectly with my professional aspirations. My time at Brock has been the highlight of my life, from volunteering with different communities, to being engaged with clubs to indulging in random Brock events. If I had to pick one wonderful experience from all the ones I’ve had in university, I’d say being invited to be a panelist at various events takes the cake. Being a shy person in my first year, I was ecstatic with how Brock helped me break out of my shell and grow as a person; by my third year, I felt comfortable breaking the ice with new people and sharing my experiences as a member of the Brock community.”

THE GOODMAN EXPERIENCE.

Drew MacNeil (BBA ’19 Co-op) Co-Founder and COO, XpertVR Inc. “ I had an amazing experience throughout my five years at Goodman, which I attribute to getting increasingly involved with the school and local community. Whether you join a club through the Business Students’ Association, get involved in case competition teams, participate in networking events, or even take the lead on class projects that involve working with local businesses, the more real-world experience you can gain throughout your time at Goodman, the easier you may grasp your course work and be prepared for your career after graduation. Goodman provided me with personal growth opportunities, business knowledge and practical experience beyond my expectations.”

34

Seema Iver Founder, Sat Yuga Life “ I had the pleasure of being a part of the 2020 JDC business case competition, in which the winning team was comprised of Goodman students. I was incredibly impressed with their aptitude, creativity and presentation skills. The recommendations they offered my company were practical, well thought out and tailored specifically towards the roadblocks I was facing. I’m proud to say I have implemented many of their suggestions into my business. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Goodman School of Business to any employer: These high-calibre students would be an asset to any business or organization globally.”

Monica Gola-Macdonald (BAcc ’21 Co-op) Tax Accountant, KPMG “ I chose Brock particularly because of their reputable co-op program. I really liked the idea of job searching and building connections with employers as a young student because it forced me to step outside of my comfort zone. Also, the co-op stream provides paid valuable work experience in your field amidst your studies- it’s incredible to be able to directly put theory into practice and vice versa. My greatest experience at Brock was being a member of the JDC Central 2020 sports team and placing second in School of the Year. I met so many amazing business students that were at the top of their classes and involved in so many other business clubs. I made many long-lasting friends whom motivated me to be the best version of myself and I had so many great memories from all the volunteering opportunities and social functions we partook in together.”


Kaley Vu Fourth-year BBA student and Goodman Business Students’ Association President “ I initially chose Brock because of the smaller campus size and commitment to community atmosphere. In addition to in class learning, the student programming, workshops and BSA club events really gives you the chance to meet and build your inner business professional with other like-minded individuals! Emphasizing not only what you need to know to be working in your desire field, but also how to be successful as an individual with everyday skills. Some of my best experiences or memories were made by getting involved with all the opportunities that Goodman has to offer. A plethora of internal and external conferences and events really give you the chance to get to know others also looking to develop their university experience.”

Jayna Sutaria (BBA ’21 Co-op) Business Analyst, Engagement and Product Management Strategy, RBC “ The Goodman School of Business is filled with opportunities to develop personally and professionally. Goodman supported my passion for technology and business through courses focused on information systems; leadership opportunities with student clubs and case competitions that strengthened my problem-solving and communication skills; and co-op work terms that helped me develop a deep understanding of the rigor and complexity required to operate a global organization.”

Kai-Yu Wang Professor and Chair, Department of Marketing, International Business and Strategy “ What differentiates Goodman from other business schools is its unique offering of experiential education opportunities that benefits students as well as local businesses and not-for-profit organizations. For the past nine years, I’ve used service-learning projects collaborating with the local communities in all of my courses because I want students to know that the knowledge, concepts and theories they learn can be applied to the real business world. The quality of teaching and research at Goodman is outstanding because of its strong and productive faculty members, many of whom have been recognized nationally and internationally.”
