As an economics major, I had a lot of frameworks to translate business in and out of mathematical equations. My thought was that by adding data analysis abilities on top of that, I would be able to take data and distill it down into solvable problems like I had been doing during undergrad. I also experienced several problem solving strategies during my year of work that would have been able to be enhanced by data collection/analysis skills that I didn't have. All in all, I wanted to get myself to the next level in our increasingly digitized world! My favorite thing about the program so far has been the amount of resources we have as compared to our class size. With only one cohort, I feel like we've been able to grow fairly close and rely on one another for just about anything. That smaller size also lends itself well to more personal instruction from professors. The Career Development Office (CDO) has been a great resource in terms of preparing for and securing interviews with companies that I am interested in. I think that having a career coach, like John, that is solely dedicated to the MBAn program is incredibly helpful.
