I’ll have to write up WHY I left the MS in Data Science program. You’re in for a juicy story with screenshots. But outside of that, “tech/data science/cybersecurity/IT/information assurance/systems engineering whatever the new name will be next year” is dead right now and even if I stayed where I am, they don’t hire entry level workers. I will stay where I am until retirement. I’d be backtracking on the monies. An MBA with a Data Analytics concentration will get me further and I can always pick up analysis work on the side if I want with my newfound skills. I completed the Data Analytics concentration with my Data Science courses so all I have to do now is complete the business courses. Story coming soon…


For my second course in the MBA program, I am taking BUSA 505 The Business Environment.

✍🏿 Here’s a description of the course:

  • Organizations of every size utilize core business functions and concepts such as marketing, human resources, accounting, financial management, economics, information systems, and operations management. Managers must understand these functional areas and the relationships between them in order to competently lead their team within the organization. This foundational course in the MBA program provides this necessary context and sets the stage for students to delve deeper into these concepts throughout their program.
