Business Analytics

What is your title and what do you do at SBDC?

I am a Market Research Assistant at the SBDC. I work with SBDC Consultants to provide research and other services, develop market research information for clients, assist in inputting client data and counseling sessions into the SBDC CRM system, and help answer client calls.

How does what you’re studying apply to what you do at SBDC?

As a market research assistant, I get to experience data analytics in a hands-on setting. With access to multiple databases, I am able to gather data vital to the clients and put it in a visually appealing format. These are all skills that I have acquired in my Data Mining for Managers class.

What do you plan to do in the future?

After graduating from undergrad, I plan on going back to school to obtain an MBA in either Analytics or Finance. After grad school, I would like to work in the private equity or banking industry as an analyst.

Are you involved in any extracurricular activities outside of SBDC?
