I really wanted to go into industries that weren't necessarily available for students with just a bachelor's Degree. I also knew I didn’t have enough clarity on what role I wanted, exactly, and I knew I needed to have a more solid business foundation for when I transitioned into the social impact sphere.
The MSMS Program provides that foundation, offering essential business acumen, setting me up to be that much more of a contributor.
MSMS has definitely delivered on my expectations — and exceeded them. The curriculum is holistic and the classes are in-depth. In fact, classes are different from my undergraduate experience in the sense that everything is “real world.” Every case study is applicable to any role we might take in a full-time job, which prepares us that much more when we do get into the workforce.
The Career Services staff have helped with that foundation, too. There’s a comprehensiveness to tackling every aspect of preparing for the job recruitment process — everything from helping us hone our career paths, to refining our résumés, to how to negotiate an offer. They provided us a complete understanding of everything that comes with the recruitment process and make sure that we will excel.
College was a big step for me. And pursuing an MBA felt like it was so far off. The MSMS Program put me in a place that, not only is an MBA a reality, I'm already halfway there. This program has reassured me that the career path I want to take is the right choice for me, and that everything I'm learning here can be directly translated into what I really want to do.
