MBA Arts and Media Administration & Non-Profit Management, 1998
I graduated with an Arts degree (from another institution...) in '96 and came to York to complete my MBA in Arts & Media Administration and Nonprofit Management - I had NO idea what to do with an Arts degree and was thrilled to find out that there are lots of interesting and varied opportunities out there (I haven't followed the traditional MBA career path...).
Each of my jobs (National Ballet, Queen's University, TVO and now York) has involved lots of relationship building work, event planning, fundraising, etc. I get to work with and meet tons of interesting people and that's why I love my job - it's always changing.
