Meet Some of Our Students

“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.”

“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”

“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.”
