Being a female in MBET

Shanae Vander Togt

I have never had difficulty imagining. It is amazing how many ideas I can come up with in my day-to-day life, opportunities like, “I wish I could do that” or “wouldn’t that be great if this existed?” Before I came to do my Master of Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology (MBET) degree, I would come across these opportunities and dismiss them after only a quick ponder.

Accomplishing my goals through MBET

Melissa Young Sing

Previous Master of Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology (MBET)student, Melissa Young Sing, recently sent us an e-mail after finding an unexpected note while she was packing up her room. This note was a list of goals Melissa had written at the beginning of her year as an MBET student.

My first recruitment event: Re:Engineering Leadership

Victoria Faraci is an English graduate student at The University of Waterloo, currently on a Co-op term as a Communications and Marketing Assistant at the Conrad Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology Centre.


Last week I was invited to attend my first ever recruitment event: Re:Engineering Leadership, which took place at uWaterloo on Tuesday, October 1 from 5:00 – 8:30 p.m. in E5. This was a graduate studies fair where hopeful Engineering students thinking of graduate studies were able to ask questions and get more information.

What made this event really cool, though, was the fact that there were four other schools in attendance, all named Canada’s top engineering destinations:

Why MBET is different

Alphonsus Aigbokhan

I first came across the Master of Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology (MBET) program in 2009 while I was doing an online search for graduate programs in entrepreneurship. Having attained a Graduate Business Education (MBA) before, MBET initially struck me as any other graduate business degree, but after reading more about it, I was intrigued.

My life as a Canadian student in Denmark

Masters of Business, Entrepreneurship, and Technology (MBET) student, Miguel Mejia Diaz, recounts his experience at the European Summer School for Advanced Management (ESSAM) in Denmark this past summer.

Miguel came to MBET as an international student from Mexico City, attended the University of Waterloo, and then represented Canada overseas in Denmark. Because of this, Miguel has a unique perspective on his time spent abroad.

How ESSAM enriched my MBET experience

After completing the Master of Business, Entrepreneurship, and Technology (MBET) program, a team of Conrad students, including Steven Wang, ventured to Denmark to attend the European Summer School for Advanced Management (ESSAM).  These are Steven's reflections on his experiences at ESSAM:

MBET: The rocket fuel for innovation

When I discovered the Masters of Business, Entrepreneurship, and Technology (MBET) program I had no inkling of how engaging an experience this would be for me. The notion of entrepreneurship and the buzz word "innovation" were dormant nouns, until I learned to embody those nouns.

From ignition week until the fire-powered year-end showcase, the rocket fuel of MBET learning allowed me to act as a powerhouse for innovative start-ups like MaRS, Communitech and the Accelerator Centre.

The Planboard experience: a few reflections

I joined the Planboard team because the project reminded me of a great saying by Sir William Arthur Ward:

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.

This innovative solution is built for those great teachers who inspire and are dedicated to make a lasting impact on the education industry. 

Lessons learned by an MBET Social Entrepreneur

To say the least, I was surprised to be nominated for, let alone win, the Conrad Entrepreneur of the Year award. My company isn't a tech start-up at all. I only recently bought my first smartphone, and I can barely code. My company—CANGO Consulting Inc.—is a social enterprise that provides management consulting services to philanthropic funders.
