Coursework Summary

I’ve taken courses across many different MIS disciplines. My data analytics course provided me with advanced knowledge of data representation using excel and r studio, and also served as my introduction to SQL. My programming courses taught me programming with PHP, SQL, HTML, JavaScript, and JQuery. These courses required me to construct functioning web applications using these coding languages. My project management course gave an overview of all aspects of project management, culminating in the creation of a project report similar to a report I’d generate in the business world.

These courses provided me with hands on experience with many of the tools I’ll need to succeed in my career field. My programming experience allows me to be comfortable around coding languages, and my prior exposure to SQL has allowed me to learn the language before experiencing it in the workplace as I would with many data analytics positions. The breadth of my coursework has given me a comprehensive understanding of the MIS field and prepared me to face any challenges the business world has.
