Scheller College of Business Analytics Center Hosts Breakfast and Career & Internship Expo

The Business Analytics Center (BAC) at Scheller College of Business hosted its Leaders Breakfast and Career & Internship Expo on Oct. 26, welcoming some of the top technology companies in Atlanta (including AT&T, McKesson, CapTech, The Home Depot, and NCR) and Georgia Tech students and alumni. The event featured an internship panel followed by a career expo.

During the Second-Year panel, MBA students Karin Manley and Zach McClure shared their MBA internship experiences at Georgia-Pacific and Delta Air Lines.

“You may think because you’re an intern you can’t reach out (to higher-ups at the company), but because you are an intern you should,” McClure shared, regarding a key lesson learned during his internship with Delta. Both students noted best practices for splitting time between classes, searching for internship opportunities, and other advice.

The event concluded with a career expo, where company representatives shared insight into company internship opportunities and hiring tips to those seeking both internships and fulltime positions.

“At CapTech, we bridge the gap between business and technology on a daily basis,” said Lance Walton, a Data and Analytics Solution Architect at CapTech Consulting. “Georgia Tech prepares students to do that from the minute they step on campus, and the Business Analytics Career Fair was a great way to meet these students.”

The Business Analytics Center serves as a platform for business analytics efforts, bringing together organizations, analytics thought leaders, talented students and a world-class, interdisciplinary faculty at Georgia Tech to educate and exchange best practices for applying analytics to solve business problems.
