          • Testimony
            1982-1986, Sports Administration

            Small school. Big benefit.YYOn top of attending classes in an ideal setting, the overall size of the University left me much better off at the end of my 4 years there. Getting to know most (if not all) of the other students in your program, and being able to know your profs on a first name basis, made attending Laurentian not only better, but more enjoyable as well.

          • Testimony
            1995-1997, Business Administration and Management

            Laurentian is attentive to student needsYYI wanted to complete an MBA but could not attend campus to do so. Laurentian went out of its way to offer an MBA via teleconference. This program later evolved into an asynchronous online format that provided even more flexibility for students. Laurentian puts into action the types of educational services that the news talks about.

          • Testimony
            1981-1983, Finance Accounting

            It isn't what's invested in you - it's what you invest in youYYIn the more than three decades since I graduated with my Commerce degree, and the two decades since my Master's, I can't remember anyone in the workplace asking me where I went to school. I can tell you that my education was at least the equal of my peers who studied elsewhere; intellect, drive and determination was why I've stood out. But the very real, practical and enriched studies that I received at Laurentian not only provided me with a solid foundation to build upon, but gave me a unquenchable thirst for lifelong learning. We all make choices and though I had many - I chose Laurentian. I'm glad I did.
