Watch: Coding and Data Combine for Powerful Results

Coding was the main reason Guillaume Marois, MS in Business Analytics Class of 2018, pursued his specialized master’s degree at Simon. But he soon realized machine learning was only part of the equation—the real power is in the data. Guillaume learned that cleaning data and deriving insights to inform decision making is how to make an immediate impact in any organization. 

He was able to apply his new skill sets to a project with the City of Rochester, with the goal to predict housing vacancies so the city can combat the problem proactively. It gave Guillaume his first opportunity to work with a large data set for a real client and allowed him to put his classroom insights into practice to make a difference in the community.

Watch: Grad Joins Analytic Partners in Boulder, CO

For Lucas Nudelman, a 2018 graduate of the MS in Marketing Analytics program, the investment Simon makes in its students was a critical factor in his decision to enroll. Whether it’s in the technology offered in the classrooms, networking happy hours on campus, or the Analytics Career Day in New York City—a chance for students to make connections with Simon alumni at companies such as EY and Nestlé Waters—Simon’s dedication to providing opportunity to its students was meaningful to his success. 

The investment Simon made in Lucas—paired with his determination in working toward his goals— paid off. He recently joined Analytic Partners full time as an associate market science analyst in the company’s Boulder, CO, location.

Watch: Coding Opens Doors in Finance

One year ago if you had told Jaime Staengel, a 2018 MS in Finance graduate, that she would be coding, she “would not have believed you.” But because Simon’s MS in Finance program is STEM-designated, she found herself doing just that in her Quantitative Finance with Python course. She now understands that coding opens doors in finance, including the ability to obtain and analyze large quantities of data to derive insights and drive decision-making.

These skills paid off in big way. Jaime interviewed with a Simon alum at Corning Inc. and was offered a full-time position in a quantitative finance role.

Watch: Career Search Strategies for Continued Success

Before coming to Simon, Wenxin (Nancy) Ding, a 2018 MS in Accountancy graduate, thought accounting was all about the “Big 4” firms. But after spending a year at Simon, Nancy gained a broader perspective and learned there were many opportunities beyond traditional audit, tax, and advisory roles.

Not only did the coursework thoroughly prepare her for the CPA exam, but her relationship with the Career Management Center was critical. She soon realized they gave her the tools to find not only her first job, but every job she will have throughout her career.
