      There are no reviews for Dalhousie University yet,

      • Testimony
        1988-1990, MBA

        Dalhousie MBA

        I came to DAL from CBU in Cape Breton (BBA 88') and had both a great academic and business experience (Coburg Consultants) at Dalhousie. With a class size of 100, the placement rate in full time employment was second to none, even in the jaws of a deep domestic recession. Key employers were confident in expending their Corporate Banking training budgets in further developing DAL MBA grads. DAL grads retain a reputation for hard work, loyalty and fair dealing, all traits that transcend both borders and business cycles.

      • Testimony
        2005-2008, MBA

        Dal Inspired My Mind

        It was a privilege to take the DAL MBA (FS) program geared towards financial services executives, professionals and managers. This program provided me with a great experience in a number of areas: it is academically challenging and well structured to balance the needs of a busy professional, it provides substantial insights into the industry and creative tools today's financial services manager needs and can use when making decisions at work, and it provides a significant opportunity to network with like minded professionals. Dal program inspired me to do more, and I did more. It helped me get to where I am today.

      • Testimony
        1983-1987, Bachelor of Science (BSc)

        Great university, wonderful education, incredible location!

        Dalhousie consistently strives to attract strong faculty who provide a great, well-rounded education and a strong platform from which to launch successful careers.. As a host city, Halifax can't be beaten for its architecture, culture and facilities.
