Candidates expects to be pushed out of their comfort zone, gain skills vital to entrepreneurs and nation builders and have their expectations for themselves increased dramatically.
Nadeem Nathoo: University of Western Ontario- HBA (3rd and 4th year), Expected Graduation Year – 2013
Nadeem Nathoo is currently working towards receiving an HBA in either entrepreneurship or marketing from the Richard Ivey Business school. Though he is only a second year student, he always aims to explore new opportunities no matter how outside his academic background. For example, this past summer he was fortunate enough to have interned at the Grameen Bank (microcredit) in Bangladesh for 2 months. During this time, he and a few others implemented a positive marketing campaign that was responsible for attracting over a thousand new members. Nadeem then used the skills he developed from this experience to roll out a nationwide marketing campaign for Coca-Cola. His strengths include understanding newfound concepts easily and generating original and actionable ideas.
