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

I decided to join the MMA program to pivot my passion for analytics into a career. I felt that the MMA program offered a balance of technical and managerial education necessary for a path in the business and tech world.  

Top Reason(s) for choosing Rotman:

Of course, Rotman possesses a world-class reputation and a strong community of alumni. However, I felt that Rotman had a strong emphasis on combining advanced analytical skills in combination with business education, whereas other analytics programs only focused on building technical skills.

I expect to gain a better understanding of the needs and applications of analytics in industry. “Analytics” has been a major buzzword in recent years and I’m learning more about the potential of this field every day.
