A recent UWindsor graduate is the first Canadian to be accepted into a unique international business and development master's program.
Jenny Perla Leon (BA’15) is one of only 15 students from around the globe to win a place in the Masters of International Business Development & International Business Management program. The program will give her an opportunity to earn two degrees over a 15-month period.
The tri-country program is in its second year and gives students a chance to study at the University of Milano Bicocca in Milan, Italy; Alliance University in Bangalore, India; and Centennial College in Toronto. The combined international business management education also gives student exposure to the cultural and socio-economic environment of each country and city.
Perla Leon, a Modern Languages and Second Language Education student who has also worked as an admissions assistant at Centennial College, says she has always been passionate about business and hopes to start her own business upon completion of her studies. She expects the program to give her the experience and knowledge to help her succeed and believes it will help broaden her mind when it comes to business.
“I am fascinated by international business, how it works and how you manage it,” she says, “While working in the international department I learned a lot about international students, how to recruit them and assist them.”
