Master of Science Business Intelligence graduate and Bachelor of Science Computing graduate with strong organisational and time management skills gained throughout university. A degree in computing enabled me to strengthen the skills I already possess as well as develop new skills such as written and verbal communication skills, the ability to work on my own initiative and in a team environment, and the ability to take an analytical approach to tasks.
As a computing student I developed the skills to identify possible risks and problems I encountered as well as the skill to implement effective solutions. I have excellent comprehension and retention skills and I am a dedicated and driven character who is self motivated and has the ability to work in a fast paced environment.
I previously worked as an assistant manager for a number of years which provided me with a number of useful skills such as leadership qualities and the capability to make critical decisions, and in summer 2015 I was awarded a scholarship for ‘Woman in Science and Engineering’ to study a Masters degree in Business Intelligence.
My master’s degree has enhanced my skill set in data analysis, predictive analysis, report writing and pattern identification, providing me with a range of experience in both theoretical and applied contexts. Along with computing and technology I have a keen interest in criminology which is why I chose to base my final dissertation project on ‘the utilisation of business intelligence tools for crime detection and prevention.’ This was an empirical study that provided me with an insight into crime forecasting.
I am now currently working as an e-commerce and digital analyst which is utilising all of the skills I have gained throughout my time at university and my previous working experience.
