Before coming to Lancaster University Management School, I undertook my undergraduate studies at the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, where I majored in Supply Chain and Operations Management. 

As I approached graduation, I felt there was still a lot to learn in the field. As I searched multiple sources for the top business schools, there was almost unanimous agreement that Lancaster University Management School had one of the strongest management science departments in the world.

When I first arrived in Lancaster, it was a bit of a culture shock, moving from a big city to a small town. But the friendliness of the people and the active student body always gave me activities to fill my spare time. The department staff were also very open and friendly, and never gave me any reason for complaint. If ever I had an issue, they always had a satisfactory solution.

I feel the MSc in Logistics and Supply Chain Management has prepared me well to move on into the field of business, specifically consulting, which is what I had expected the programme to prepare me for. The truth is, I have been left with the feeling that I might want to come back to school very soon to do a PhD.
