Where you’re from:

Bristol, RI

Where you went for your undergraduate degree and major/minor:

Boston University
Major: International Relations
Minor: History

Any work experience or specialized skills you’d like to mention: 

I’m currently a Sr. Financial Analyst at Teknor Apex where I support a global manufacturing division with strategic planning, budgeting and forecasting. Prior to joining Teknor, I worked in finance, internal audit and fraud prevention at Citizens Bank.

What would you tell someone who is interested in this program?

The program focuses on teamwork and fosters strong relationships among students as you work closely together. The connections I made in the MBA program led me to my current role at Teknor Apex and I now count some of my classmates as my closest friends. In addition, the PC MBA program offers the opportunity to work with expert faculty, many who have business experience and connections to local companies.  

I would also add that as a working professional student, I appreciated the flexibility that the PC MBA program offers. In addition to traditional evening classes there were opportunities to take compressed courses on weekends, during winter session or work directly with faculty on directed studies.

Diana Iglesias ’21 ’22MSBA 

Where you’re from:

Cranston, RI

Where you went for your undergraduate degree and major/minor:

Providence College
Major: Finance and Management

Any work experience or specialized skills you’d like to mention: 

During my time at Providence College, I have had the opportunity to do an internship abroad in Barcelona, Spain. I worked for an international Marketing Agency called KiCK Global assisting an account manager with clients’ social media platforms and content. In addition, I worked remotely with the finance firm Ascensus helping clients with their 529 Plans and portfolios.

What would you tell someone who is interested in this program?

Whether you are a business major or not, the MS in Business Analytics (MSBA) program is designed to fit anyone’s interests and is for someone who is looking to expand their horizons. My advice is to not be afraid to take a different route. Everyone takes a different path and still reaches the same goal. I was afraid of pursuing the MSBA program because the MBA program is much more popular, however, it will help me stand out. Learning computer programs such as Tableau, Python and R-Studio will be great to have on your resume, and PC professors will help you every step of the way. Mastering two programming languages and becoming a data visualization expert is something I never imagined doing, but, so far, I am enjoying every lesson and topic learned!

Filip Losowski  ’18MBA 

Where you’re from:

I’m originally from Poland but even though I have spent much time in Germany and Poland, I’ve called Rhode Island home for a couple of decades.  

Where you went for your undergraduate degree and major/minor:

University of Rhode Island
Major: Engineering and German 

Any work experience or specialized skills you’d like to mention: 

I currently work for a German company that designs and builds industrial machines and systems. As an operations manager, my focus is on high level, future-focused strategic initiatives while continuously working to improve our ability to process projects on time and on budget. Even though financial performance is a cornerstone of my role, my true passion is connecting with people and working together to find solutions. 

What would you tell someone who is interested in this program?

For anyone interested in the program, I would stress that the decision to enroll should be both personal as well as professional. Personal growth translates directly to professional growth. Even though the program offers opportunities in hard skill and soft skill areas, the student must be open-minded and prepared for self-improvement and engage at all levels in order to truly maximize the benefits offered by PC.
