Hear what a hiring manager of our interns has to say about the value Business Analytics students can add to his company

There have been many skeptics in regards to the Big Data and Business Analytics buzz. They don't think it will last. So much so that Forbe's wrote an article discussing if Business Analytics Masters degrees were a fad or fast track.

When we posted that article on our Business Analytics news page, we stated our hiring managers are coming back for more interns and offering previous interns full time jobs and that this was a sign that Business Analytics Masters degrees were here to stay.

A recent article in Data Informed, speaks directly of one such hiring managers experience with our students and the value they bring to his company. Matt Carr of Regal Entertainment group believes very strongly in what we are teaching our Business Analytics students. So much so that he not only hires our students but also participates in our Busines Analytics Forum and provides data for students to analyze in the Business Analytics capstone class.

Our corporate partners add value to our program and in return get access to some of the best and brightest in the burgeoning field of Business Analytics. This can be seen from the feedback provided by Amber Morgan of Ernst & Young to start a supply chain analytics track.

With our enrollment more than doubling this fall, there are plenty of other opportunities for companies to benefit like Regal has. If you would like learn more read the Buisness Analytics Corporate Partnership pdf and send us an email.

Intrested in enrolling? We'd love to hear from you as well!
