Why did you decide to study the Master of Management Analytics program?
My exposure to modelling and forecasting in my prior professional and academic career introduced me to the potential of data driven decision making and triggered the realization that I wanted to pursue a career in the field. However, a preliminary exploration of opportunities made it clear to me that I lacked the specialized knowledge, specifically, the toolset required to enter the industry. My attention then switched to investigating academic possibilities, leading me to discover the MMA program. I saw that the degree delivered value in the form of providing students with the first of many technical steps in the journey to become a full stack data scientist, in addition to the business acumen and communication required skills to become an efficient translator. With this comprehension, I started on my application right away!
What were your top reasons for choosing Rotman?
The comprehensive curriculum, innovative facilities, intensive structure, industry exposure, and leader interface offered by Rotman appealed to me greatly. This made it clear that the faculty had not rushed the release of the new program and that everything had been thought through carefully. Toronto being the fastest growing North American technology market was another substantial consideration.
What are you looking forward to most in the program?
I am looking forward to the practicum project. The project posed to us is interesting, ambitious, and impactful, so am enthusiastic to start leveraging the technical skills developed in the fall semester onto a real-world application. Working in data-driven environment in an industry polar to my experience are other motivating prospects.
The Master of Management Analytics is designed to give students the advanced data management, analytics and communication skills needed to become an analytics professional.
