Why did you choose WPI?
The unique, fast-paced academic environment complemented by a low student-to-faculty ratio and project-based learning.
How did WPI's philosophy of Theory and Practice, and working with teams, prepare you for facing real-world challenges in the workplace?
The course work provided me with the opportunity to strengthen my teamwork and communication skills through projects with students in other majors. These experiences have been invaluable in my role as business analyst, in which I serve as a liaison between stakeholders to achieve a common goal.
Any other ways your studies at WPI prepared you for working in your field?
I learned problem-solving, analytical, and facilitation techniques that I use daily. The professors' ability to provide real-world examples in class emphasized the connections between the course material and its applications to different industries.
