What is your current professional position? How did you get here?
In 2020 I finished my academic path in the field of Information Science. It was a five-year path, including a Bachelor’s and then a Master’s degree in Information Science. After completing my Master’s, I started working at Euronext as a Continual Service Improvement (CSI) Analyst. My main role is to ensure and drive continuous improvement of ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) processes. In other words, my tasks involve analyzing data and process performance measures, suggesting process changes in order to maximize the performance of the service management process and achieve the desired results.
How has the MCI contributed to your career path?
From my perspective, the Master of Science in Information Science (MCI) offers us a specialized training for those who want to follow the information management aspect in their professional career. It provides a solid training that allows us to obtain technical and social competencies in information management. Besides the compulsory course units, we can choose optional ones that allow us to obtain knowledge in other areas that we wish to acquire. Regarding the dissertation, this can be done in the research area or in the business area. I consider that the follow-up process is well structured.
Given your experience, would you recommend the MCI for those who intend to become professionals in the area of Information Management? Why would you recommend it?
MCI is able to offer a high level of employability. We can work in the public or private sector and both in research and in business. In addition, we can work in several branches, which allows us to broaden the range of employment opportunities.
