As our economy becomes increasingly global, competitive, and innovation-based, it follows that knowledge, expertise and 21st century skills will be what Canadians – and Canada – need to achieve the kind of career success and economic prosperity we want. And it was the knowledge and skills I gained at university that have been such important ingredients in the success that I −like many fellow emerging business people − have been able to enjoy.

Even though Wealthsimple is a tech-based company (as was the San Francisco startup, 1000memories, where I previously worked), I actually didn’t know much about technology when I was studying business. I wish I had. But I’m glad to see a trend towards interdisciplinary learning – business students learning from computer scientists, medical students learning about business, and so on.

  1. ” I actually didn’t know much about technology when I was studying business. I wish I had. ” Why do you think it is important to know as much as you can about technology?
  2. Why does it make sense to have “business students learning from computer scientists, medical students”?
