Working with Clients

My favorite part was the live case competitions where we gained experience working with real data, communicating with a client, and creating a business presentation; as well as being able to see what all the other teams came up with for the same problem.

Don't feel like you need to learn the entire field of analytics by graduation! MSBA gives you the proper knowledge, skills, and abilities that enable you to dig deeper into specific topics when needed for projects and use cases.

Choosing a Business Program

I really enjoyed the breadth of topics we covered in 11 short months. I think I've used something from every class in my job even though most were not listed in the job description when I applied.

Coming in with almost no experience, the diversity of experiences I had through classes, projects, and working with so many other people helped me discover the types of problems I like to solve and what skills make me unique in the marketplace.
