Why did you decide to study the Master of Management Analytics program?

In the past, I have worked as a data analyst in UPS Canada, and I want to become a data scientist who can make the data and intuition go together. I believe the MMA program at Rotman is going to be a milestone in my career development. 

What were your top reasons for choosing Rotman?

The curriculum will provide essential knowledge and tool for advancing analytical skills. It is right in the center of the data analyst/scientist job market.

What do you expect to gain in your next 11 months at Rotman?

Essential programming and business knowledge to advance my career and leadership skills.

How have you found the online experience at Rotman? 

It is challenging but manageable. The faculty staff and professor are extremely helpful and understandable.

Did COVID-19 make you re-consider your decision to study this year, and if so, what made you decide to continue? 

In my case, COVID-19 did not make me reconsider my decision to study this. I had a job offer during COVID-19, I give up that offer in the end and joined MMA because I am a believer in the MMA program and Rotman School of Management.

The Master of Management Analytics is designed to give students the advanced data management, analytics, and communication skills needed to become an analytics professional.
