Master of Science (MSc)

Meet Maame Fosu, MSc candidates in Management

“The fact that we are being taught and trained to use and commercialize businesses with emerging technologies is today's order for solving many business problems.”

Why did you come to Western for your graduate degree?
I chose Western and my program because it stood out to me as I have always wanted a career in the tech business field. The entire application process was smooth and the website was extremely user-friendly. Responses from the graduate office were also really quick. Additionally, the courses were listed on the website so it gave me an idea of what I was in for and I was also able to make an informed decision.

Where’s your favourite place on campus to work?
My favourite place to study on campus is the breakout rooms at Ivey. Aside from them being very quiet and conducive to getting work done, the study desks are really comfortable, and there are screens and whiteboards to aid studies.

What advice could you give someone considering applying to your graduate program?
The program is very useful for a successful career. I believe it tackles today's major problems as it provides you with many opportunities to learn and acquire useful tech skills and knowledge. It also exposes you to the real business world through the case-learning method.
