The Management Science program at Naveen Jindal School of Management provided me with an opportunity to restart my education. The thing that appealed to me about this program was the flexibility to choose from a multitude of specializations that the school has to offer. I believe that Master’s in Management Science with its various offerings will allow me to enter the job market equipped with the most up to date skills. So far, I have found all my classes very engaging and enlightening. Interacting with the teaching assistants for the various courses I realized that students feel more comfortable discussing the various concerns regarding a topic that was taught in class. I would like to help the prospective students by answering their questions and helping them make the right choice in order to further their careers.

After achieving my degree and having 3 years of job experience in the unique field of perfumery and cosmetics, it struck my mind that there is lot more to learn apart from the job I was doing and hence I decided to pursue something exciting and new. I chose to go for an M.S in Management Science as it’s a very unique course and extremely industry oriented. This course is carefully designed with flexibility. You are able to study Marketing, Supply Chain, Analytics, Statistics, etc, which allows you to personalize your course and develop your skills according to your interests and aids you to expand your horizons. I would like to aid every student, especially those like me who, are from non-technical backgrounds and want to pursue a masters here at UT Dallas. Please contact me if I can be of any further assistance. I am looking forward to seeing you around the campus soon.

One day I asked Google “what is management science?” Because for a while I was confused about what I should do in the future. I searched online for a program for me to further my knowledge after I received my bachelor’s degree in accounting and worked as an auditor in an accounting firm and a business analyst in the field of marketing & consulting for a couple of years. I thought these two previous job roles were not relevant, however, the ultimate goal for these two positions is to use the appropriate data to make better decisions and develop and execute more desirable strategies, in order to let stakeholders get more satisfying results. Without any exaggeration, our management science program gives all students the freedom and flexibility to choose courses without restriction to any specific track. In other words, we can customize our courses besides the core course. As a student in this program, what I learned is totally above my expectations. More importantly, the core courses enable the student to develop the analytic abilities that address the technical, as well as the behavioral challenges. The major problems of the days demand an ability to integrate the technological skills and business way of thinking, and this is precisely what this program is about. If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to reach me out!

In the contemporary context, I believe it is the discipline of management that is the most responsive to the needs of a dynamic and increasingly interconnected global economy. Post my under graduation in History, I decided to take up the Masters in Management Science program at The University of Texas at Dallas to widen my academic horizon. I was keen on taking up this course as it provides both a horizontal understanding of management while giving me the necessary leeway to explore my domain specialization. The core courses of the program are well structured to develop the necessary skills for the global job market. This, paired with a wide array of electives helped me design my masters according to my interests.

I have been a working professional for a long time. When I decided I wanted to pursue my masters I was bombarded with so many options. Choosing the right option was a tremendous challenge. I wanted a degree plan which gave me the freedom to choose courses from both technical and business domains and not restrict myself to a specific track. MSc program is a perfect fit for me. Additionally, as MSc is a STEM program, it gives me the option to have hands-on industry experience after completing my degree. The Program has a lot to offer in terms of career fairs, personal guidance from the professors and staff, networking opportunities, resume workshops, etc. I have the privilege of serving as a Teaching Assistant and honored to receive in-state tuition scholarship for international students. Currently I am in my graduating semester and looking forward to venture back into the professional life. I am indebted to MSc Program at the Jindal School of Management and want to give back to my school by helping prospective students make an informed decision about joining our program. Please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to assist you. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you around campus.
