I am applying for Master’s in Information Systems Management and Master’s in Business Analytics. Both the courses emphasize on latest technologies like Machine learning, data science, data analytics. I have an MS degree in Information systems management from University of Akron where I was exposed to Business Analytics course. I also had chance to work as Business Consultant where I fulfilled most of BA activities. What excites me most about this program is that it emphasizes on Big data and building predictive models which is where I want to specialize in. Also, there is a capstone project which is part of the curriculum which I could add to resume after the course. Also, a degree from Leavey would be make me a great candidate in job market. My long-term goal is to advance my career in Big data direction and be a data scientist one day.
