Just over a year since graduating from the Master of Management program, Kevin Loi is putting both of his degrees to work in his career. As an Organizational Change Management Analyst, his job demands a combination of business fundamentals, communication skills and emotional intelligence.
Kevin has prepared well for the professional path he is on. Completing an Honours BA in Psychology at York University, Kevin grew his abilities in studying behaviour, critical thinking and analysis. He worked as both a Research Assistant and a Discussion Facilitator – roles that made him comfortable engaging and analyzing others.
He then decided to pursue a Master of Management degree to grow his understanding of business.
“Applying to the MMgt program helped me to find direction,” says Kevin. “To me, the name Schulich meant that I had to live up to my potential. It made me feel like I could earn the success I aspired to, if I put in the work.”
Since completing his degree, Kevin has professionally matured and flourished.
“The Master of Management program opened up my network, grew my communication skills and emotional intelligence, and allowed me to transition effectively into the workforce,” he says.
The best part? Finding success in a career that fully utilizes his skill set. The networking, project management and teamwork skills from his Masters degree pair advantageously with his background in Psychology.
“The teams I work with demand a high level of relationship savvy, verbal communication skills and emotional awareness,” says Kevin. “A big part of my role is securing buy-in for different initiatives, and identifying where and why staff are resisting change.”
