For Julie Sheppard, the gap between piano performance and an MBA isn't that wide.
As a high school student she was torn between music and business. A scholarship for music school tipped the scale.
Now she's tapping into her other passion and finding there's more to business at Memorial.
Although she's taking a course-based Master of Business Administration, Julie worked on a six month research project designed to study strategic risk in provincial and municipals governments.
Strategic risk is a way of measuring the impact global factors and local factors will have on plans.
It's a side of business Julie hadn't thought about before coming to Memorial.
