Stephanie Spinella, 2013 MSA Candidate
I will graduate with my Master of Science in Business Analytics from LSU’s E.J. Ourso College of Business in May 2013 and am currently pursuing a career in analytics.
- Driving successful results with excellent organizational skills, attention to detail, and a fondness for learning. I've always had a propensity for strategizing and preparing when it comes to academics and this trait has carried on to other activities I’ve participated in, such as my experience as President of the Association of IT Professionals at LSU or as Webmaster of my sorority.
- Possessing a thorough knowledge of business intelligence, data visualization, and dashboard design. My dream job would be where I could showcase my creativity and use it to foster a better understanding of analytic findings. I have a lot of experience using business intelligence software Tableau, as well as the Microsoft Office suite and Adobe products.
- Adept skills in programming, database management, and predictive analytics with complex data sets and in assessing user requirements for data-driven decision-making. Using multiple SAS modules, such as Base 9.3, Enterprise Guide, and JMP, I have learned the theory behind running statistical analyses and feel confident about drawing intelligent conclusions based on the results. One of my strengths is that I'm very good at learning new software programs, I am confident in my ability to learn new programs quickly and efficiently.
