Departing for Kuala Lumpur

The University of Ottawa’s Telfer Executive MBA class of 2019’s cohort is currently dispersed around the world, with candidates in Ottawa, Toronto, Seattle, Hong Kong, and Nagano; however, in a few days we will regroup in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to complete the final consulting project of the Executive MBA’s Signature Series of Six Business Consulting Projects. These projects join together application and theory as candidates solve business problems for real organizations and challenge candidates applying the knowledge they learned in the classroom.
