Why did you decide for the MSc Organisational Change & Consulting at RSM?
In the last year of my bachelor studies, I had no idea what I wanted to do next. I didn’t know if marketing was still the best choice for me, I didn’t even know whether I wanted to go abroad or not. A friend of mine told me he was preparing to come to RSM because it was one of the best management schools and that it was affordable as well. I went online and browsed through all the programmes. I chose the MSc in Organisational Change & Consulting because I thought it would be a good fit for me. Talking to an MSc student from RSM reinforced my belief; I had been interested in consulting for quite some time and there aren’t many master programmes that focus on it.
What did you like the most?
I think the best thing about the programme was the way I could use the theoretical notions that I gained. We had guest lecturers and professionals, and they were always open and willing to answer our questions regarding the more practical aspects of consulting. My favourite courses were managing professional organisations and foundations of consulting, but I also liked the others a lot.
What was special about the RSM?
Because I completed my bachelor studies in Romania, the differences between my master and bachelor studies were quite big. The greatest difference is the relationship between the students and the professors. At RSM students encouraged to share their opinions, ask questions and challenge ourselves in the process. We were also encouraged to ask for constant feedback on our work.
Why would you recommend this Master?
The MSc in Organisational Change & Consulting programme is one of the smaller programmes at RSM, which I believe, works to our advantage; this way, we get to know each other on a deeper level. I think that as a group, we were always curious, we interacted during classes and were open. As an international student, I was very happy to see that everyone was so helpful. I mostly appreciated the diversity of opinions. We challenged each other to think outside of the box, to come up with better, stronger arguments and just to work harder.
