This motivated me to pursue a formal degree, thus, I chose MS in Management Science.

For me, the MS Management Science is a perfect transition from accounting to the IT managerial field. I got my bachelor’s degree in Economics and then I worked as an auditor in the Beijing Government for several years. Thanks to this job, I got the opportunity to know how IT was applied to the traditional accounting profession in terms of effectiveness and efficiency. So, I became interested and needed a program which would strength my IT background. I chose MS Management Science since it matches my personal career plan. School also provides me with assistance in figuring out my future professional job. I would like to share my experience with anyone who is interested in this program. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
