Can anyone tell me if they used academic references or professional references for the co-op program? I am a bit confused since the referee description says "Please provide the names and contact information for at least two instructors most familiar with your academic work"

I provided one academic and one professional. If you have any doubt in this, would suggest you to contact the admissions team.

I used academic, but I emailed to ask if they had a preference and they said no

Hi Guys,

I have applied to the DeGroote Co-Op MBA Program. I have submitted all the documents and completed the Kira Interview as well.
How long does it usually take to get an update regarding the application status? Also, is there a Personal Skype Interview as well for the International Candidates for the Co-Op Program?

Any leads and information will be very helpful.

Thanks,
Arijit

Hey Arijit,
I posted my timeline in my first post. If you look at that you can see how long between Kira and my final interview. I think it was around 2 days before they emailed me to set up my interview.

Hey guys,
For the co-op skype interview, do they acknowledge/reply/add back when we add the cbcd handle to contacts. I had added it to my contacts and pinged them as they mentioned in the mail
Quote:
please send us a message via Skype when you add us as a contact, identifying yourself.
. However, there is no response or anything.
Also, at the time of the interview, do I directly just video call them or wait for them to call...how does it work?

Thanks!

You need to add them on the day of interview, however if u have added them previously they will not send any acknowledgement as such.you just need to call them on skype on the day of interview and they will join the video
Hope that helps

The interview was of 45-50 minutes long where she started with questions such as tell me about yourself,why mba ,why Degroote
Short term and lon term goals.Moving forward she asked some behavioral questions as how will you deal with negative elements inside your workplace
Some leadership skills you inculcated and leadership experience.
About failures

These were the type of questions followed by some follow up questions from the interviewer and then lastly i asked 2 to 3 questions and the interview wrapped up.

Please DM me or connect on 88888801469 for any sort of help.

Best wishes to all.

Guys,

Lately, I'm receiving quite a negative feedback about DeGroote full-time MBA program. I have a work-ex on the higher side, hence adcom suggested me to apply to full-time MBA.
Though Co-op program looks good ,can anyone please clear the air around the full-time MBA program. Is it any worth applying to this program.
I have to make a decision of applying before 30th March deadline.

Thanks in advance !
