Meet the Conrad Centre alumni

Melissa Upjohn

The Conrad Centre is pleased to announce that profiles of alumni and students of the Master of Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology (MBET) and Enterprise Co-op (E Co-op) programs will be published on the Centre's website throughout the month of July.

Alumni of the Conrad Centre continue to make an impact in Waterloo, Canada, and on the world stage. This is only the most recent of several initiatives to showcase the Centre's alumni and students. For Global Entrepreneurship Week in November 2013, five alumni were profiled in blog posts. In May 2014, an Archives webpage, an up-to-date list of external media coverage, was published. Now, the stories of Conrad alumni and students will be highlighted in individual profiles.
