That might come to you as a lot off innovation and management terms. Mm I, which is how it's effort toe, uh, everywhere. So to begin with, I would like to give you a bit off background as to why I chose them and my what was my background on my my interest while choosing this program? And then maybe I can help you with some tips on how how you can do your best to get selected in the program. I am a mechanical engineer by trade, So I did my mechanical engineering back in India was working for an engineering consulting form, and that's when I decided that I wanted to take a step forward in tow. MAWR management title things, But I still did not want to leave the technical aspect because I still loved engineering as any engineer would do the very first step that I had to take with Look for MBA programs. The one thing in my personal opinion, and this should not affect anybody out there listening to this video. I felt that I will be kind of boxed in the second year often M. B A and I have to choose a field off my specialization. So I was looking for something that's one year on as an addition. Being an international student for me was, How fast can I get a job after doing from Masters Program? Greatly, N B. A can definitely get your job. If I want to do a one year program and if I want to land like use those management skills in the environment, how can I best to? So when I began my search, I obviously begin my surgeries all the buzzwords because I was definitely looking toe take up rules azi innovation manager or something that helps organizations kind off put their best foot forward. That's where I stumbled upon the end of my program at U of t. The unique thing that I liked about the MME program Waas that it gives you a eight month intense, kind off academic background or academic course. Then it gives you four months tow experiment with those academic skills in the market and which is that kind off covered and like, wrapped up by the final paper presentation. At least that's what the overall program structure is. This is what stood out to me is because I wanted to come in. I wanted to make sure that I could make use off my technical skills, learn new managerial skills and quickly apply that into the market and get a job, which is touch wood. You got a job you wanted to do one year program and you got through it. What was the what was the one driving factor that made you choose? Mm I rather than other programs. Now, just to tell you, University of Toronto is one of the one of the top I would say the top universities in Canada on the faculty within the program, uh, you get personalized attention. You're a small bunch off a group of candidates that walk together through all those eight months and then start looking for jobs. Everybody is having similar interests in mindset because everybody is from step background, and that's one of the unique things about this, this management program. The other thing is that this is probably just a little fun. Fact is that I was two years in tow, working environment, so getting back to studies was definitely something that I was looking forward. So this program was the best fit because you get eight months of studying and then you directly go back to your job search.
