A Shelter in the War Against Cancer

For Alexandra Morgan MNA ’00, the fight against cancer is personal. It played a pivotal role in her decision to become CEO of Family House — a San Francisco nonprofit that cares for children stricken by the disease.

“About half of my family died from cancer, and I was with two of them, an aunt and an uncle, at different times when they passed. It was awful,” said Morgan, a graduate of the USF School of Management's nonprofit administration program.

MS in Analytics Graduates Achieve 100% Employment

MS in Analytics Graduates Achieve 100% Employment | #USFSOM | Scoop.it

The most recent cohort of graduates of University of San Francisco's (USF) Master of Science in Analytics (MSAN) program achieved 100% employment in data analytics careers within 83 days of graduation.

The M.S. in Analytics (MSAN) degree at USF is an intensive one-year program that provides students with the skills necessary to develop techniques and processes for data-driven decision-making — the key to effective business strategies. An innovative, interdisciplinary program offered jointly by USF's College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Management, the Analytics Program delivers rigorous training in the mathematical and computational techniques of Big Data. It provides mastery of the analytics tied to strategic decisions — and the skills to effectively communicate these results in business settings. As part of the program, each student is required to do a practicum within a company to hone their skills in data research and analytics.

“We aim to cater to the industry demands for tomorrow, not today," said USF's Jeff Hamrick, professor in the program, and vice provost for Institutional Budget, Planning, and Effectiveness for the university. "The practicum experiences we provide our students are nothing like regular internships. In internships, usually students seem to be lucky if they do something more sophisticated than Xeroxing. During practicums, our students work one-on-one with mentors on business problems with data-driven solutions. Most students stay with their companies for the entire duration of the program, and many are hired by those companies upon graduation. We’re looking for active interaction during these experiences.”

MSAN students reap the the benefits of the practicums because they are able to apply what they learn during class in this industry setting. “The practicums allowed me to learn cutting-edge techniques while boosting my resume and greatly improving my job market outlook," said Conor O’ Sullivan, MSAN class of 2014, who is now a data analyst at Jawbone, a consumer technology and wearable devices company that builds hardware products and software platforms powered by data science. "USF pairs students with companies that are of the highest caliber in their respective fields.”

And employers are taking notice of the USF MSAN combination of classroom knowledge paired with real world application. "If you want to innovate and advance in big data analytics, you need bright, skilled, and adventurous human beings, " said Andreas Guenther, a director at Xoom Corporation, the digital money transfer company based in San Francisco, and employer of MSAN graduates. USF MS in Analytics program achieves just that."

This is a very good program.  My friend graduated from it and got a good job almost right away.  For one year intensive, I think it's totally doable.
