Now, as Director, US Sales at STEMCELL Technologies, Nina finds herself in senior leadership meetings, still drawing on her learnings from the PTMBA program, including skills in business strategy, accounting and economics.
She says her time at UBC Sauder helped her develop the ability to make quick, informed decisions, “I can sort through the most relevant information and make smart business decisions with confidence.” Her keen understanding of strategy
and people management, along with the business insights she gained during her PTMBA, are what helped Nina accelerate her already successful career track.
As Nina continues to push her professional boundaries, she is happy to give back as well, “I was thrilled when UBC Sauder approached me to become a mentor for a current MBA student and it really feels like my education has come full circle,
both professionally, and personally.”
