“Waterloo's Online MMSc-MOT master's program significantly impacted my career. I got my first promotion within six months of starting the master’s program. The program gave me more confidence to set a higher amount for what I expected in a wage. It made a big difference in my salary. I broke even on the tuition within six months of graduating due to a bonus and a salary increase.

 Its flexible online format allowed me to balance work and care for my two children. The interactive classes and support from professors made it feel like a classroom experience. The projects we completed, the presentations we delivered and our interactions with other students all helped me grow as a leader. It gave me more confidence to step into management roles.

The program exceeded my expectations and continues to inspire my professional growth. The main factor in getting my current job in Dubai was the master's. I wouldn’t have gotten the job without it.”
