“It is a privilege to be in a role that is involved with the onboarding of incoming DeGroote MBA students as they embark on a life changing journey. DeGroote provides every student with countless opportunities to excel in both their professional and personal lives. I am looking forward to working with the administration, faculty, DeGroote leaders and my fellow peers to provide the incoming MBA class with a remarkable experience.” – Vivian Sadeh


“I am really excited to take on the role of the 2021 DLDP program coordinator. I want to take this opportunity to assure that I am committed to facilitating the platform for students to make use of DLDP to enhance their MBA experience in improving both academic as well as non-academic performance. I am looking forward to working with DeGroote leaders, faculty, administrators, and my peers to support all the incoming students to excel, enjoy, and grow in their new journey.
