Why Business Analytics at Wisconsin?

Haider Barq (BS ’19, MS ’20) describes his MS Business Analytics experience at Wisconsin.
John Barcheski

“The program essentially built the relationship I have with my current company, and gave me the opportunity to interview and land an amazing job. I was not qualified analytically prior to this year to get a job in analytics consulting, but now I am definitely more than qualified with the tools I have learned over the past year.”
