Bathinda boy who first made it to the one among the world’s top-10 business schools has now become the poster boy on the prospect of a reputed Canadian university.

Passed his master in Business administration with flying colours from Schulich School of Business of York University, Toronto, Inder Dhillon originally belongs to Harnam Singh Wala village of Bathinda district.

Son of a farmer, Dhillon has been featured on the prospect of the York University to attract talented students for its Schulich School of Business from across the world.

Schulich School of Business is one of the top 10 business schools and York University, Toronto, is a reputed university of Canada.

Inder was always a sharp student and went as international student in University of Windsor of Canada in 2006 and finished his bachelors with double degrees in Professional Studies and Business Administration in 2009 that too in just 3 years against regular time of passing same in 4 years.

He was then recruited by Wells Fargo Bank, amongst top 3 Banks in the US, and got promoted as the youngest Senior Credit Manager. After working for around 3 years in banking services, he get back to study and decided to pursue MBA from Schulich School of Business of York University, Toronto.

He not only studied here but also contested for the student government President in final year. He competed against two other candidates and won with majority votes to become president of the Graduate Student population.

Meanwhile, He also acted as the Vice President Asia of Global Presidents’ Network Graduate Business Forum. Top 50 Business Schools across the world, such as Harvard, Columbia, Tuck, MIT, Stern, get together at this forum to share best practices on how to lead the student governments.

He also secured 1st place in Finance Case competition at the National MBA Games 2013 while completing over 700 MBA students. His school Schulich also won the National MBA Games overall Trophy.

With long lists of achievements at his back, Dhillon is not surprised at the decision of University to feature in its prospect.

“I have been paid for my hard work and I hope other students from my city back in India would get inspiration from my success. I Thank my parents for this success,” said Dhillon.

Dhillon’s Suggestion for Students aspirants of studying abroad

Be serious: Canadian universities and colleges exude strong academic cultures and provide great opportunities for students to excel. But many students get distracted with the independence and liberty of the Canadian lifestyle. So staying focused is what matters in the end.

English Must

It is imperative for students to be well versed with the English language to get a white collar job in Canada. I encourage all aspirants to engage in English language skills and learn them from reputed institutes across the state, even if they cost a little more than others.

Should enter for master or graduation

Even though getting only Masters in Canada can end up being a little less expensive than doing both bachelors and masters, I prefer that a student should pursue a bachelors degree in Canada. The exposure that a student gets in their Bachelors degree is professionally valuable.

To get part time Job while studying

The best skills to get a job are to speak fluent English and to network with local businessmen so that they can trust your work ethic and let you work for their companies.
