Student Showcase: Lidia Tudor

Lidia Tudor

Lidia grew up in Bucharest. After earning a degree in economics and computer science, she went to work for the European Union in Brussels, quickly rising to the post of director of regional development. A move to Toronto in 2005 led to an MBA from the Rotman school at U of T and the establishment of CamCassini --- an international business consultancy where she is a partner. Lidia leads business development and business analysis for foreigners who want to buy or develop businesses in Canada. Her clients come from Belgium, Sweden, Norway, the U.S., the U.K. and France.

“Law is really closely related to business,” she says, regarding her decision to enrol in the GPLLM and its Canadian Law stream. “When you enter into a new market you need to understand what the regulations are. I need to know for future development of land what the legislation is and how it impacts business. We work with many contracts and partnerships. I need to identify issues with terms and conditions to avoid risk.”

Beyond academics, Lidia says the program is a networker’s dream. “It brings together people from all different backgrounds and industries. I think down the road it will lead to lasting business contacts.”
