A word from the Ernest C. Trefz School of Business

“With 26 years of experience delivering technical solutions, I’m acquainted with most aspects of analytics and systems, from both hands-on and managerial perspectives. The ability to bridge between business and technology is crucial; it is a skill that sets candidates apart. Our Analytics and Systems (M.S.) degree program provides students with minimal technical experience the orientation, exposure to, and comfort with using and interpreting information to fuel fact-based decisions. Students emerge as hybrid business/IT professionals with the dexterity and comfort to glean insights and wisdom from data for positive business results. Nothing pleases me more than when my students return and affirm that the material I taught them made the difference in landing their first job or securing a job change into the analytics and systems field. This experience can’t be duplicated elsewhere.”
