Master of Business Administration - Success Stories

James S Denford, CD, B.Eng (Eng Mgmt) (RMC), MBA (RMC), PhD (Mgmt) (Queen's University)

"I was in the second class of the MBA program in 2000. Having just completed Land Force Command and Staff College, I thought that I was prepared for long hours - was I wrong! The workload was intense but also valuable as I found myself learning new concepts and facing new problems on a weekly basis. I used the base of knowledge gained subsequently throughout the remaining ten years of my military career and into my civilian career in academia. It was a tremendously challenging but rewarding experience."

"Centralization, transformation and optimization, three buzzwords that quickly became my main effort since I became Deputy Commander of Real Property Operations Unit in Quebec last summer, a unit that had just been centralized under ADM(IE) and that continues to undergo major transformations and optimizations of its business processes in order to deliver its mission in a new working environment. The RMC MBA equipped me extremely well to navigate these challenges as I found myself responsible for managing and optimizing the unit organizational structures while at the same time leading the effort of putting together the unit first triennial comprehensive integrated resource management business plan. New in the business of real property management, the RMC MBA provided me with a solid foundation that catalyzed my integration to the business and permitted to achieve my objectives set forth by my Commanding Officer. Engineer by formation, I started the MBA program wanting new challenges and by curiosity, what I did not expect is how useful and relevant, the teaching was going to be in my daily work."
