Introducing Emma, our Student of the Week

Mar 01, 2018

Student feature of the week! This week we introduce third-year Leder student Emma Newhook!

“The reason I chose King’s was to play on the basketball team. I was super excited to be involved with a small university as I came from a rural school and like the community it brings. My favourite part of Leder is having all the support from the professors and students. There are so many exciting things that can come from a commerce degree. Currently, I have the opportunity to compete in an international non-profit case competition, and I love the opportunities that Leder gives me. The Leder school rocks!”
