Where it’s never “business as usual.”
As a student at Odette, you will quickly discover that education is not just about taking classes. Certainly, academics are essential, but the complete Odette Experience also focuses on your personal growth and career preparation. While our faculty takes the lead in academics, our region’s business community plays key supporting roles in helping you learn beyond the classroom.
The Odette Experience includes unique extracurricular events such as the Breakfast with Champions: How to Build Winning Organizations speaker series, where students and community members have a chance to meet with prominent leaders from business, sports, politics, and the arts to share ideas about building organizations or teams who are considered winners in the arenas that they compete. Past guest speakers have included: Dick Haskayne, retired executive of 9 major corporations, leading automotive industry analyst Dennis DesRosiers, Hall of Fame hockey player and former Montreal Canadiens and Dallas Stars General Manager Bob Gainey, and Detroit Tigers President, CEO and General Manager David Dombrowski.
The result? At Odette, you won’t simply learn about business… you’ll experience it.
