Emily Secnik (Civil Engineering)
The BEST Certificate courses have helped me connect to like-minded students from Lassonde, Schulich and Osgoode. Through these connections I have learned to step outside of my comfort zone to learn new things across different disciplines. These courses have helped me understand and recognize my potential as an entrepreneur in the future. I have learned to pitch an idea, create a marketing plan, pitch to investors, understand how to finetune an idea, protect the IP surrounding it and, especially, work in teams with different types of leaders.
The instructors for the courses have real life experience as entrepreneurs and working with entrepreneurs, which allows me, as a student, to learn from their experiences and mistakes. I would wholeheartedly recommend the BEST Certificate to all students at Lassonde. I had an amazing experience in all of the classes that I took”.
