I am including some additional resources that will help your students work with Tableau:

4.1.16 – Epic trip to Micron in Boise Idaho. Three current and two future MBA students climbed in the WSU van piloted by Pullman MBA Director Mauricio Featherman. We spent two days in the Holiday Inn and attended a full day of discussions on Friday April 1st led by Micron business analytics managers, supply chain analytics, HR analytics and data scientists. Wow! So many insights! Basque Dinner too! Every student was interviewed for summer internships and full-time placements. The Pullman MBA will spin up a project related to HR analytics sponsored by Micron. We were treated very well. Thank you Ron Moser for opening this door to HR Analytics and thank you Michelle Burke for setting up an epic trip.


– The starting front court from the WSU Men’s Basketball team will be enrolling in the Pullman Data Analytics MBA. Both men are starters on the PAC-12 ALL-ACADEMIC MEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM. These talented student athletes know what you can know, analytics helps athletes and business people alike. Josh went on to finish both an UG degree in Management Operations and the Pullman Data Analytics MBA in 4 years! Josh was awarded the 2017 Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
