UBC Sauder drastically changed the way that I approach a career. I used to think about my career as being one profession that I choose, and sticking with it for the rest of my life. My schooling has enabled me to pursue a path with many turns, where I can navigate the workforce more freely, finding work that aligns with my values and interests while always having the flexibility to try something new.
