What Terence says about the Master's in Service Management, Supply Chain Management

Terence from Mauritius

Why did you choose the Supply Chain specialisation?

The Supply chain specialization is something that I have had an interest in as it has an organizational thinking and problem-solving aspect to it, which I enjoy. I knew that I wanted to work with people while still having that supply chain aspect in my life and Service Management provided me with a combination of both worlds. Understanding the importance of supply chain and how vital it is in an ever-growing globalized world is a key reason for choosing this specialization.

What do you think about the teaching style within the programme?

The teaching style within the programme is great in the context of Service Management. There are many presentations, group discussions, and oral exams. This is key to Service Management, as being comfortable, talking to people and large groups is what service management is about. There is a variety of ways in which students are tested for different courses depending on what the learning outcomes are for that specific course. I enjoy group work and having lectures with different specializations because I get to know more people, have fun and interesting discussions, and learn to work in teams more efficiently.

What is the student life like in Helsingborg?

Student life in Helsingborg is what you make of it. The city itself is calm and close to the beach. I participate in as many student activities as I can in Helsingborg. This is great for me as I get to know more students and make more friends. There are opportunities to play sports, go to bars, and do other student activities. While it is not as busy as Lund, when I do want to do more student activities, I just go over to Lund to participate in them.

Do you have any advice for students considering to study at Lund University and Campus Helsingborg?

Get out of your comfort zone and experience new things. Getting involved with different student groups and taking up leadership roles in student organizations is a great way to make friends. In addition, it helps to gain different experiences. The one thing I have learned so far here at Lund University and in Sweden is work-life balance. Coming from doing my bachelor’s degree in the USA and working there for a year, I used to be consistently working or studying. Coming here I have learned that having a work-life balance has been great for my health. One thing that I underestimated coming here, was the lack of daylight and how much it would affect me. However, having friends around me and activities to go helped me get through the lack of daylight.

What do you plan to do after your studies?

I plan on finding a job in Europe if I manage. I enjoy the work-life balance that it has to offer. I would like to work in the nonprofit sector as this is an industry that usually goes unrecognized despite how much work and positive externalities they have in society. I want to merge what I have learned from Service Management and Supply Chain with improving the nonprofit sector to make it more beneficial for those who use the services.
