Magee, who is minoring in economics, is involved in a diverse array of extracurricular activities.
He is on the executive for the Commerce Society, volunteers with Habitat for Humanity, and in 2014 was the producer of the ASCARS — the Mount Allison Students’ Union’s annual awards show celebrating student life and student and community achievements.
Magee also exercises his creativity by taking part in drama with the Motyer-Fancy Theatre.
In third year he and four other Commerce students travelled to Toronto to take part in a case competition called the Battle on Bay Street. Mount Allison was the only school outside of Ontario to participate in the competition.
“It gave us a chance to network with industry professionals and talk to other students about how the business program was carried out at their schools,” he says. “It makes a big difference to see what we are studying applied in the real world.”
Magee is planning to pursue a career in investment banking after graduation.
“What I like most about the Commerce program at Mount Allison is the small class sizes,” he says. “Talking to professors on a first-name basis and having them know who you are makes a big difference. It also helps that we have professors who are industry professionals.”
