MSc Business Analytics 2018


MSc '18, Ivey Business School
HBA '17, Ivey Business School

Briefly, describe your background and profile. Think about how Ivey is/will complement your own personal background and experience.

Prior to starting the MSc program, I was an HBA student focused on strategy and finance. My interest lies in solving business problems, and the Business Analytics program provided me with the knowledge and tools I need to strengthen my skill set. In my summer internship as an Analytics Consultant, I was able to support top level decision-making through analyzing, visualizing, and communicating findings through real data.

What were you most nervous about when you began the program? Has that nervousness eased, and/or how have your expectations been met/exceeded?

Coming from a business background, I was quite nervous with my lack of coding experiences compared to some of my classmates. Slowly, that fear has faded through in-class training sessions, projects and assignments, case competitions, and constant practice in my summer internship.

How do you see the case-method developing you as a business leader?

I feel comfortable at making management level decisions, analyzing a business problem from all angles, and communicating thoughts and ideas in a team setting.
