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.

🧪 Homework

An easy first week. There are only 5 modules so I’ll try and do a module a week with plenty of time to spare. The Inbound Business Evaluation exam was brutal and you can’t click away from the exam. They allow you to re-enter the exam 3 times and only give you 48 hours to complete it. Good thing it’s not graded in case you forget to complete it in time. Stay tuned for week 2…
