Why did you decide to study the Master of Management Analytics program?
The central reason I choose to join the MMA program was my desire for a career change into Data Analytics. For me, there was no better option than the MMA program at Rotman. With an excellent team of Professors, a large alumni network within Rotman, and additional professional development opportunities like the career services and Self Development Lab (SDL) I knew this program was right for me.
What were your top reasons for choosing Rotman?
With a large hiring freeze and uncertain future, I know that Rotman would be a good place to weather the storm.
What are you looking forward to most in the program?
The connections I will make! With a small cohort of only 55 students all from diverse backgrounds, I am looking forward to hearing about their experiences all while getting a phenomenal education.
What do you expect to gain in your next 11 months at Rotman?
A strong foundation in Data Analytics off which I can build my career. This is also coupled with a desire to build some strong connections and friends (professors can be friends too!)!
How have you found the online experience at Rotman?
I think everyone can agree that the covid-19 pandemic has not been an easy thing to handle. I would have preferred an in-class experience, but I didn’t let this stop me from making some great connections and feeling like I am part of a community! The use of student-run communications channels has been a huge help!
Did COVID-19 make you re-consider your decision to study this year, and if so, what made you decide to continue?
I accepted my offer for this program in December of 2019 but even with the onset of COVID-19, I did not think to change this decision.
The Master of Management Analytics is designed to give students the advanced data management, analytics, and communication skills needed to become an analytics professional.
