Scheller MBA students appreciate the excellent foundation and knowledge they gain from the business analytics curriculum.
“Scheller's Business Analytics curriculum is actually one of the main reasons I chose this MBA program—and my experience surpassed my expectations,” said Georgia Pearce, who will graduate this Spring and has accepted a job with Boston Consulting Group. “The analytics courses blend technical information with real-world business contexts, both in the classroom and in experiential courses like the Business Analytics Practicum. The faculty are incredibly supportive and tailor instruction to the needs of the class, and their staggering accomplishments in the academic world are only matched by their humility – I’ve had multiple professors who’ve won college-level awards and never said a word. I came into this program intending to improve my Business Analytics skills, and I’m still surprised by how much I’ve learned.”
