On April 27th, the MBA/JD Student Society, EPICentre, the Odette School of Business, and the University of Windsor Faculty of Law held an inaugural MBA/JD Alumni Celebration at the National Club in Toronto. The goal of the event was to celebrate the accomplishments of the University of Windsor MBA/JD alumni, while reconnecting with former professors and colleagues. The celebration highlighted the fact that alumni from the MBA/JD program have become entrepreneurial leaders in their respective fields. To facilitate this discussion, a panel of speakers shared how their MBA/JD degree supported them in their careers.
