I interned in Washington, D.C. and heard about how companies and political campaigns are leveraging big data to draw insights. Being able to learn about various companies in a smaller group setting gives us the opportunity to really engage with these companies, ask questions, and build connections. This program teaches students extremely valuable technical skills employers are looking for, and also how to effectively communicate insights and findings.
Andreas Van Dijck
My career goal is to help small businesses grow by using the business and analytics skills I have learned in the MSBA. I have found myself having natural conversations with executives at Salesforce, IT professionals, and other business representatives. They all seem more than impressed with the skills I have learned.
The faculty have been so friendly and helpful. My professors are always available to answer questions in or out of class and are happy to discuss content beyond the scope of the course. We’re using real-world data in every class. Having the opportunity to practice producing a solution for a client before doing it for real will be invaluable going into the workforce.
The MSBA is a 30-credit hour program designed to be completed full-time over one academic year. If you have a mind for analysis, a passion for critical thinking, a desire to dig deeper, and an untapped talent for communication, the MSBA is the program for you.
