“I was stuck in a technical role, was not moving up, and felt depressed. The education gained through the Online MMSc-MOT program helped me to move into management. As a leader, you need technical management and business skills. My electrical engineering degree provided the technical part, and the Online MMSc-MOT is where I learned the management side. The program changed my life. It gave me a boost of energy and confidence to make a career change.

I did not have a degree from Canada. The master’s opened more doors in the Canadian job market. Now I’m a graduate of the University of Waterloo. People who see that on my resume or LinkedIn profile show respect, that respect was not there before. Soon after graduating from the program, I applied what I had learnt about optimization techniques to my network planning job and saved the organization over one million dollars.”

“This program allows me to learn about aspects of management I've never been exposed to. It builds on what I've learned at work and broadens my perspective.”

Working in engineering, I felt I required more knowledge and education to prepare me for senior roles, both to grow into technical roles and move into management positions. I found the Waterloo Online MMSc-MOT program, which aligned with my goals and catalyzed my career further. I felt comfortable choosing an online program with the University of Waterloo due to its exemplary academic reputation.

The program provided technical and business knowledge that gave me the confidence to excel in management. It's like a technical-focused version of an MBA. Completing it while working impressed my employer, helping me secure a management position. I highly recommend this program to any technical professional seeking career advancement or those in technical management roles looking to advance.”
