“I chose the MBA + MSA program at the Mays Business School because I am looking to make a shift in my career in the oil and gas industry into a role that has more of an emphasis on business planning as well as data analysis. I look forward to the opportunity to gain greater knowledge and fill certain skill gaps in statistics, predictive analytics and data science with the dual MSA program beyond what is offered in the business data analytics concentration.“
