Great engineering careers are built on leadership and innovation. The most respected companies in the world rely on critical thinking and analytical skills to achieve breakthrough engineering technologies. Leaders in these organizations seamlessly blend engineering and business perspectives to confront important problems facing society. Honors Business Administration (HBA) at the Ivey Business School is Canada’s foremost undergraduate business program and recognized internationally for the leadership opportunities created for its graduates.

There are few Canadian universities that offer a robust Engineering and Business combined degree program like the one offered at Western University. This program has allowed me to explore my passion for both Chemical engineering and business through eye-opening experiences inside and outside of the classroom.
