KARMAN MANGAT

CO-CHAIR

Karman is a third year Integrated Business and Humanities student at the DeGroote School of Business. Inspired by the idea of making DeGroote a business school for the future, Karman co-founded and was the director of marketing for the first ever Degroote Consulting Association, alongside acting as the Chief Operating Officer for the Degroote Marketing Association. Inspired by the idea of creating real change as an undergraduate student at McMaster, Karman has also taken the liberty to start several projects and initiatives surrounding mental health in academia, among young adults and teenagers. While uncertain of which career pathway to pursue, Karman is continuously challenging the status quo through focusing on his philosophy of life, centred around the principles of commitment, passion, and determination. Excited for what the future holds, Karman is eager to bring this similar mindset and level of ambition to the McMaster World Congress. In his free time, Karman loves to play Tennis, listen to music, and read. Karman is thrilled to be a part of the MWC team for its 43rd year.
