Xilian Sansoucy, DMSB’21, is taking over our Instagram account @damoremckim this week! Follow along for an inside look at her co-op experiences with Toast Inc. and edX, her global experiences in Singapore and India, and more!

“The finance industry is changing really quickly, and just having financial knowledge is not enough to stand out in this job market. You need data analysis skills as well… that’s where this quantitative MS in Finance program can help you.”

“Get out of your comfort zone. I promise you the personal and professional rewards will be worth it.”

“While the current times are challenging, the industry will always be competitive, so giving up is not an option. It’s really about putting in the effort and creating your own opportunities.”

“Taking the program online allowed me to set my own work time, which for me is after my son goes to bed, and that was a tremendous help. I developed relationships with some of my professors and classmates that are just as strong as if we had been in a brick-and-mortar classroom together.”

Forced to disconnect, D’Amore-McKim student groups reconnect virtually as Huskies at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Data technology and business needs are changing so fast that you can’t be good at just one thing. There’s always going to be a new tool, a new framework. The MS in Business Analytics program will push you to pick up new skills”

“The thing I enjoy the most about this program is the variety of tech skills that I’ve learned so far. And I’ve become close to the people in my cohort.”

“When I told my friends that you can actually run a real fund here, they couldn’t believe it. They had never had that opportunity themselves. It’s a really attractive part of the program and gives you experience in investments that a book can’t teach you.”

This Instagram takeover is a part of series highlighting six alumni from our MSA/MBA program.
