I chose to study at LUMS due to the content and structure of the programme and the LUMS graduates’ prospects in the competitive job market. The knowledge I’ve gained helped me boost my confidence and grasp real-world management science issues in a practical manner. The helpfulness of the staff and the engagement with internationally diverse students have been undoubtedly the most enjoyable experiences at Lancaster. Given a chance, I would love to relive this entire year all over again, as it was one of the best years of my life.

From Chile

After almost five years of working in the public sector, I wanted to pursue my postgraduate studies in an industrial engineering related field. I chose to study at LUMS mainly because of its reputation within the UK and Europe and also because of the excellent programme profile. I can strongly state that everything I learnt here has been of great help for me to complete all the duties I have now, working in the academic sector.

MSc Operational Research and Management Science
From India

I wanted to pursue a Master’s degree in Operational Research to improve my skills as a simulation engineer, and this programme exceeded my expectations. The Professors were very approachable and helped me a lot in studying various topics by patiently explaining relatively new concepts. The programme’s modules were satisfying, yet highly demanding, pushing me to work hard. We also had a Christmas dinner which was attended by the Management Science Department students that proved to be hilarious and also a lot of fun!

LUMS' diverse student population and campus environment influenced my decision to study there. I also liked the proximity to the Lake District National Park - an area of outstanding natural beauty in the UK. Throughout the programme  I enjoyed working on different tasks with groups comprised of people from different cultures. I have since joined Ernst & Young as an operations research consultant.
