Lucy is a third-year Bachelor of Business Administration Marketing student who recently completed a four-month co–operative education work experience in India as part of the new India Connect Scholarship Program. This program is a new 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. Lucy knew at a very young age that she wanted to pursue a career in business. Since then, she’s been seeking opportunities that teach her about international business and help her master the art of marketing. 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. Lucy has always had a burning desire to start her own company and succeed in the business world. She hopes to run her very own successful company someday.
