Independent Interdisciplinary Study

"An exciting part of the doctoral program at Asper is that it offers a number of opportunities to students from diverse backgrounds.

Having spent a long time in the corporate world, I was very apprehensive about my performance when I first joined the program.

The opportunities and the encouragement given by the faculty during my stay here have boosted my confidence and performance immensely.

The best part of the program is that one gets to work on research projects with faculty from diverse areas, which I find very unique and rewarding."
