Lucy Morrow is a third-year BBA Marketing student who recently completed a four-month co–operative education work experience in India as part of a new initiative called “The India Connect Scholarship Program”. This program is a partnership between Langara College, Optimus Information Inc. and the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada. Selected as one of the first two students to take part in this program, Lucy was able to launch her global career at one of Canada’s fastest growing IT firms, Optimus Information. The India Connect Scholarship Program was the perfect opportunity for Lucy to gain valuable work experience while developing intercultural skills in one of the world’s most dynamic emerging economies.
After graduation, Lucy plans to work at a marketing firm with similar core values to the ones at Optimus Information. Furthermore, Lucy wants to start her own company someday.
