MBA students elevate leadership skills at program retreat

On May 29, Master of Business Administration students attended the Elevate Odette leadership retreat, a networking and informational session hosted by the Odette School of Business.

The day portion of the event included a panel discussion of advice and experiences with inspirational leaders Dayna Eagen, director of clinical quality and safety at Windsor Regional Hospital; Vincent Georgie, executive director and chief programmer at the Windsor International Film Festival; and Matthew Johnson, executive director of economic development and climate change for the City of Windsor.

In the evening, the event moved to Ambassador Golf Club for a keynote speech by Anna Markett, senior vice-president, supply chain, at Stellantis North America, followed by networking with corporate partners of the MBA program.

“The Elevate Odette leadership retreat was a fantastic opportunity for our MBA students to connect with corporate partners and business leaders, to learn from them, and explore career and experiential learning opportunities,” says Clementa Stan, Odette career advisor and an organizer of the event.

Odette School of Business interim dean Ashish Mahajan says the event was a first of its kind for the program, and a resounding success.

“We are thankful for the impressive list of alumni, corporate partners, and business leaders that made an impact on our students, both at this event and throughout their studies with us.”
