Coming from Quebec, following and being able to participate in MSA activities was a great way for me to make new friends and new connections; both professional and personal. Joining the MSA also allowed me to gain crucial skills and feedback that I will be able to use for the rest of my life in business!

Being far away from home, the MSA helped me gain a support system and inspired me to make the most of my university experience. The MSA helped my second home feel like home.

Being a part of the MSA has shaped my University experience in a way that I had never imagined. Coming here as a transfer student last year, I was aware of the MSA, but I was pleasantly surprised by the way the MSA immediately inspired me to get involved and be a part of the family.

The MSA hosts many events throughout the year; including social as well as academic events. Whether you are looking to meet students within the faculty or looking to further enhance your University Education, there is an event out there for you. We can’t wait to see all your faces there!



Within the MSA we have 7 clubs for students to join and educate themselves on what they are passionate about. Not only are clubs a way to enhance your knowledge in fields that interest you, it allows for like minded students to connect and make relationships that will last a lifetime.


Conferences and competitions are an amazing resource to prepare students for real life business problems. The MSA has a full list of conferences and competitions that students can apply for with the opportunity for partial subsidization.
