MSc Information Systems Management
Chinonyerem Olumba is a former MSc Information Systems Management student who studied within the Sheffield University Management School and Information School.

Making the decision to study at Sheffield was a huge step for me because it was my first time studying abroad and all I knew about Sheffield was from the internet so I was quite uncertain. In contrast, I am so thankful that I made the decision to study here, Sheffield is a very culturally diverse city with such a great and welcoming community. I was able to acclimatise perfectly and even went on to assume roles and try out things I never thought I could. I was a Postgraduate student in Information Systems Management and I really could not have asked for more attentive and knowledgeable lecturers.

I have now secured a Technology Consulting Analyst role at Accenture, within their London office. I get to work on different projects across a range of sectors providing innovative solutions to business challenges faced by Accenture’s clients, as well as improving their existing business processes.

I am certain that my degree from Sheffield helped in securing this role for various reasons. Being a student from a Russell group top 100 university certainly gave me an edge. Also, studying a course from a world leading Management school and Information school equipped me with relevant industry skills thus enabling Accenture to have enough confidence in my ability and to sponsor me. 

Upcoming events for offer holders and enquirers

We're running a series of information sessions, student panels and virtual activities to help you understand what Sheffield has to offer.
