What is your perception of the program? I have offers from UCD, TCD, Bath, Gies (Management), Cranfield, Durham, SMU, ASU, Skema, Cass (finance). My undergraduate degree is in accounting and finance and I am currently interning at a startup In business development. I have worked in finance previously at 2 fortune 50 firms. The thing is that in the short run I hope to migrate to Canada but the FT rankings portray a dismal picture of the business masters in the country, not to mention that an Ivey MSc in management is almost twice as expensive as most of the other unis I have offers from.


Do you think the uni of Illinois has a good reputation In Canada and I could get a job in the field of analytics or finance? I heard that the iMBA curriculum is not rigorous. What do you think the iMSM experience is going to be like in terms of rigor? What do you think about the online MIT finance micro masters or a Cass online diploma to compliment my masters in management from Illinois?





They have also informed me that the class strength will be about 150 for the iMSM. I do plan on pursuing the business data management specialisation in the program which is pretty unique I think.


Congrats on getting all those offers!
May I ask what questions did the admissions team ask in the interview? Is it similar to MBA programs' interviews? I am waiting for my interview for iMSM and would love to prepare more for it!
Hope you find the right program! Thank you!

Thanks a lot!
The interview is not that tough and they will just ask you a few questions about your future goals and what makes you think that the program is a good fit for you. It wont be that long; just about 10-12 mins max. 
Where are you from if you dont mind me asking?


Thanks for the information. Sorry for the late reply.
I'm from Taiwan :)

Hi! I just found out about their iMSM program yesterday, I am late for the Fall 1 term but I am working on my statement of purpose and essays to apply for the Fall 2 term. Out of all schools I have, this is my top choice. Would you have any recommendations on how to increase the chances of being accepted? I would really appreciate any advice. Thank you.

Hi the interview is quite easy. I have done a few courses from the program but it doesn't really suit me tbh. It's a great program if you already have a job that you want to stay in and don't want any career support. The profs are great (Prof Noel for marketing is the best prof I've ever come across), the quality of students is very mixed with some of them not knowing basic math but then again you would find top level machine learning developers from Microsoft etc too, the classes are huge, little opportunity for networking, all the jobs being advertised on social media are in the US. So all in all a great brand name if you are in the US and don't need any career support. Little value if you are in Asia.
Do you have any specific questions?
