There is an unprecedented demand for graduates with strong business analytical skills *. The BI&A program is all about connections and networking between students and companies. In addition to the many extra-curricular activities that provide students with opportunities to meet representatives from leading companies in the business analytics field, we provide a number of more formal mechanisms for companies seeking students and students seeking employment.
Stevens Office of Career Development
The Office of Career Development is totally dedicated to advancing the career prospects of every Stevens student.
It does this by providing a wide range of educational programs and placement services. Educational programs include training in resume writing, job interview skills and career planning workshops. Placement services include job fairs, the arrangement of interviews with corporate, government, and non-profit and student resume postings.
Employers are intensely interested in hiring our graduates. The BI&A program facilitates the hiring process through its Advisory Board, a speaker program involving major figures in the analytics area, and the capstone “practicum” courses in which students are required to work with an industry mentor on a real analytic problem of interest to the company.
* McKinsey and Co., who coined the term “Big Data,’ state that there will be a need for anywhere between 120,000 to 190,000 people with analytical skills in the U.S. in the next five years or so.
