Gain experience in a real world assistantship
Homing in on Data
Alaina Dingwell, ’23, and Tenille Black weren’t exactly sure what they wanted to do in the next chapter of their careers when they entered the Master of Business Analytics program at USC Upstate. An assistantship program with real estate company Zillow earlier this year was key to helping them discover what they loved about data. The program was an opportunity for business analytics students to work on teams at Zillow, where they could apply what they were learning in class to real-world projects.
