Q: What skills are you building at D’Amore-McKim that you will use in your future career?
A:I am building data analysis skills, along with the technologies used in such analysis, Tableau, R, Python, and SPSS; marketing research; and industry and company analysis.
Q: Why did you choose D’Amore-McKim?
A:I have worked in financial services for 20 years and have worked with students from Northeastern’s undergraduate co-op program on occasion. I have found the students to be intelligent, hardworking, exceptionally enthusiastic, and well represented. Colleagues at companies I have worked for, including State Street Corporation and Santander, have a favorable view of the business school. Therefore, I decided this would be the school for me to pursue this Master’s in Business Analytics.
Q: What would you say to a prospective student considering D’Amore-McKim for their business degree?
A: I would say the analytic, technical skills, and the corporate connections that the school has will give students the experience and maturity to pursue their careers.
Q: Where do you see yourself in 5 or 10 years?
A:I see myself in an executive or senior consultant role in either data management or data implementation. In other words, I see myself working as a supplier of data to colleagues who need to use data to be successful in their jobs.
“Data technology and business needs are changing so fast that you can’t be good at just one thing. There’s always going to be a new tool, a new framework. The MS in Business Analytics program will push you to pick up new skills”
“I feel like I know my fellow classmates and I have gotten to know my professors as well, in many ways better than I might have in a classroom-based course,” says Remley, “there is constant interaction that really supports and enhances the learning.”
“Taking the program online allowed me to set my own work time, which for me is after my son goes to bed, and that was a tremendous help. I developed relationships with some of my professors and classmates that are just as strong as if we had been in a brick-and-mortar classroom together.”
