    The St. Lawrence College Business Analytics program was the best part of my academic journey in Canada. This one year program dug deep into the essentials of how the world would look like. I was able to gain insight on how analytics and AI would change lives. I learned a lot of technical skills, mostly hands-on dealing with data and solving real life problems. But most of all I improved on my soft skills, both leadership and communication skills. This program was a boost for my career and my current start at IBM. It was definitely a life-changing year.
