MSc Information Systems Management
Chinonyerem Olumba is an MSc Information Systems Management student studying with Sheffield University Management School and the Information School.

Making the decision to study in The University of 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 now thankful that I made the decision to study here as Sheffield is a very culturally diverse city with such a great and welcoming community. I have been able to acclimatise perfectly and I've even gone on to assume roles and try out things I never thought I could.

I am a Postgraduate student in the Information Systems Management  and I really could not have asked for more attentive and knowledgeable lecturers. It is really impressive how everything I learn can be put in practice in everyday life in the workplace. As a pioneer of the Change Lab program, I am able to work towards making a change in causes I believe in such as eradication of homelessness and women equality. Choosing Sheffield has availed me the opportunity to live a balanced life with equal parts of studying, volunteering, self development and fun.
