Growing up in a small town in Germany, Mathias Stoecker says he didn’t meet many people from other parts of the globe. But that changed when he started studying at Douglas. 

“When you come to Vancouver, you meet people from Asia, Latin America and all over,” he says. “That’s what I really like; making friends with people from around the world and getting to know their cultures.” 

And Mathias isn’t leaving Canada anytime soon. He originally came to Douglas as an international student but is now a permanent resident. After he earns his Bachelor of Business Administration degree at Douglas, he looks forward to a career in financial services.
