Lisle Campus

The business analytics program focus I pursued was a great learning platform for my career. At the time I was looking to pivot into a more data driven field and it was exactly the right fit. The program was flexible, with both frequency of program options and scheduling. The education served my learning style with collaboration and the ability to apply knowledge into a wide range of use cases.
