Renata Bezerra, MBA Global, 2016
When Renata wanted to further her career by relocating to Canada from Brazil, she chose a Ted Rogers MBA because of its downtown location, proximity to industry and networking opportunities.
The strong industry connections were particularly important to Renata because she did not have an established network in Canada. The Ted Rogers MBA offered a variety of ways to build her local profile: top industry representatives visiting the classroom; industry and alumni networking events; and high-profile MBA case competitions. Renata increased her visibility and developed her marketable skill set by placing on the podium in three different case competitions.
Leveraging the momentum of her success, Renata was connected to Ted Rogers MBA alumni at Scotiabank. She developed close relationships with the alumni and they coached her through the bank’s interview process, helping her get an MBA internship that ultimately led to a full-time position as a Senior Manager, Canadian Banking Strategy.
“The alumni network was very important. My being at Scotiabank today had everything to do with my Ted Rogers MBA.”
