Intern and Full-Time Business Analytics Student: “One of the Best Decisions I Have Made”

Before she came to Simon, Monica Perez ’17 MS in Business Analytics discovered her passion for providing data-driven insights while she was working as a research analyst at a medical school. The Business Analytics program was a natural fit for Monica, but what surprised her was having the chance to intern as a data analyst while simultaneously managing a full-time course load.

When her Career Management Center career advisor alerted her to an exciting opportunity for Business Analytics students, she never imagined she would have the chance to put lessons in R, SQL, and Tableau from her Introduction to Business Analytics class into practice so soon. She felt well equipped to contribute with senior management and inform recommendations to clients.

Her packed schedule has made Monica a “professional” time manager, and though hectic at times, she knows her efforts have been worthwhile. She sums it up best: “If I had the chance to do it again, I would definitely do it again.”

MS in Marketing Analytics Grad Begins Career in NYC

Darya Benison ’17 MS in Marketing Analytics arrived at Simon with two clear goals: to round out her profile with more technical marketing skills, and to find a position in New York City after graduation.

Academically, Simon offered the courses Darya was looking for to “rewire” the way she thought about marketing. In particular, her Marketing Research Using R class with Prof. Mitch Lovett pushed her outside her comfort zone and rewarded her with a rich portfolio and diversified marketing skillset to continue building upon throughout her career.

In terms of networking, Darya participated in various career days Simon hosts in New York City, frequently kept in touch with the NYC-based Career Management Center staff member who helps students cultivate corporate relationships, and maximized her class-free Fridays by spending long weekends networking and interviewing in New York. Her dedication and laser-like focus paid off: she’s now a data strategist at Codeword in Manhattan.
