Jeff Leung: Management Science MASc Graduate

Alumni, Jeff LeungJeff is an MASc graduate from Management Sciences who has been in communication with the department regarding development of a cohesive alumni group. 

I was very happy to discuss with him some options, and we decided a good place to begin would be to encourage all Management Sciences graduates and alumni to join the Management Sciences MSSA (Student Association) Facebook group.

Go Tottenham!

I asked Jeff for some personal notes he thought his classmates might enjoy, he said: 

Big soccer fan, favourite team is Tottenham Hotspur from London, UK.
Jeff Leung is currently working with Environmental Compliance at Walmart Canada, we're very proud of Jeff as he moves forward in his career and bright future. 
 
With an undergraduate degree in Math from Waterloo, Jeff found a good connection to fit his background and desired research. Working with Professor Bon Koo, Jeff completed his thesis and graduated in 2009. 
 

What Jeff has to say about Management Sciences; 

Management Sciences is a great Master degree, it is like a bridge that connects my academic knowledge in Math to the industry, and it helped me getting my Supply Chain position at Walmart, which is known for its Supply Chain system.  After a couple years, I found my passion in Environment and Sustainability and pursued my career in the Environmental field, then I realized that many skills I obtained from Management Sciences are transferable, such as database management and data analysis, which makes me a more valuable asset to the team and the company.  I even know some management at my workplace prefer to hire people from Management Sciences!
