Rob Weaver, OMSBA ‘23 on why he chose an online program:

"Since I have personally seen the value of remote work (employees in other countries) I didn't see any value in physically attending class."

Watch Rob discuss why he chose the Online Master of Business Analytics:

Why Purdue’s Daniels School of Business?

"It was important for the global reputation of the school to be positive since it would not only reflect upon me but my company. Outside of the public's opinion of the school, I needed something budget friendly and flexible to my schedule. I looked over the professors at Purdue and found that many do work outside of school in consultancy which I was happy to see. It was important for me to see the professors have practical business exposure so that their instructions came with experience and not from an ivory tower of theory. This was a sticking point for me since I was returning to school after having graduated 20 years previously."
