Sakkijha says what she learned in the MBA she completed this past June at Ryerson Universityâ€™s Ted Rogers School of Management helped develop her business idea.
â€œWe learned about marketing, finance, strategy, human resources â€” all key things you need to know to start and grow a business,â€ Sakkijha says. â€œAlso, being an entrepreneur is all about taking risks, but the MBA teaches how to mitigate and take calculated risks.â€
While completing her program, Sakkijha also had access to StartMeUp Ryerson, a student-run organization that provides resources and funding to aspiring business owners. The group runs the schoolâ€™s annual Slaight Business Plan Competition, in which business students present their ideas to a panel of judges consisting of experienced entrepreneurs. Mejuri won the top prize â€” $25,000, plus two years of mentoring from an entrepreneurship professor.
