“Choosing to study at the U of M allowed me the opportunity to contribute to cutting-edge biofuels and bio-products research that has potential implications reaching far beyond the borders of Manitoba.”

“You have Inuit communities, Métis communities and First Nations communities where huge opportunities are opening up and they need people that have very strong business backgrounds. What better background than an MBA? We both want to do whatever we can to encourage Indigenous people to attain upper-level positions. In turn they will inspire others within their community to achieve success.”
