Yashvi Shah | BBA 2018

Scarborough, Ontario

Program: Management & Finance 

Previous Work Terms: Scotiabank

"One of the most underrated aspects of this campus is its supportive and friendly culture. UTSC's relatively smaller size is often quoted as a disadvantage, however, what people often don't realize is that its smaller size allows for a culture where one can get individual attention from mentors and staff. It also allows for easier communication between lots of different individuals in the program. Hence, if one puts enough effort into getting to know people and getting to know the campus, they can meet a large variety of different individuals across all years and gain valuable trade secrets regarding courses and jobs."
