Alumni Perspective

“After graduating from TWU’s School of Business, I landed an influential and dynamic position with a highly reputable organization and immediately began applying the skills and knowledge that had been passed on by my TWU professors. More than being taught to memorize great textbooks, I’ve been taught how to think and act. My TWU experience has been invaluable.”


Unique opportunities include attending international exchange programs in business schools in Europe, completing coursework while participating in a travel study led by some of the business faculty, and interning with senior government leaders while studying at the Laurentian Leadership Centre in Ottawa.
