MSc 2018, Ivey Business School
The MSc in Management has helped expand my business knowledge to complement my CS background and position me for work in business analytics. Ivey teaches leadership skills and a special way of thinking unmatched by other analytics programs.
It was daunting to be surrounded by so many smart, talented, and driven individuals. I was nervous about the level of "cut-throat" competition and worried class relationships would be superficial and exist only for the benefit of personal development.
My experience has instead been that the high level of exceptionalism around me has pushed me to grow and thrive in more ways than I imagined. While everyone is super competitive, there is also a team mentality. People push each other to achieve at their highest levels. Generally, rather than hide their work for their own self-advancement, people help each other out and this has led to a fantastic learning experience coupled with some deep and valuable friendships.
