Hands down, I would say that the staff members are what makes the Offutt School of Business so incredible. All of my professors went out of their way to ensure I was going to be successful. Best showcased with the TEDxConcordiaCollege event, I feel that I had the ability to ask questions and chart my own path. I was challenged on a daily basis and the learning material extended to my internships in the real world.
I was constantly challenged to think outside the box, which is essential to growing as a professional in any industry.

As one of two business development interns, Tran's duties included collecting daily news, sending out press releases, and giving clients and foreign partners financial regulations and tax legislation updates. Overall, her internship was full of diverse experiences.

Concordia's mission statement really inspired me to make my own mission statement: 'In the pursuit to be the change, I will live adventurously and explore the cultures of the world in order to follow my dreams, create a sense of inspiration and truly foster a global community.'

It is great when you can learn something in the classroom and immediately apply it to something else that you are doing. I feel like that is something unique that I was blessed with from choosing to go to Concordia.
