Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?


Schulich Leaders are branded as innovators, difference makers and people who exhibit integrity.   They have an insatiable appetite for knowledge and a drive to excel. I am very driven by my passion to become an influential leader in my field!  In a group setting, a strong leader must be able to recognize the talents of each individual, as well as recognize his own strengths and weaknesses. Engineers hone their problem solving and critical thinking skills, while remaining open-minded and intuitive. They find solutions to global issues by crafting technologies and discovering ground-breaking research.
