"Businesses today are taking advantage of complex data sets, in order to make informative data-driven decisions. Managers who specialize in global operations and building more efficient workflow systems, based on real data, have a distinctive edge. I chose the Management Science program (now called QBA) at Pace University because it focuses on real-world application and quantitative approaches to solving complex management problems."
