Why did you choose the Sprott Professional MBA?

Studying alongside other professionals will augment the MBA experience. I love learning from the lived experience of my classmates and developing a network of contacts in other industries

Fun fact:

While working as a journalist, I interviewed my childhood hero: Wayne Gretzky.
