Big benefits for employers and students
"While the iSchool got me interested in learning the nitty-gritty of data science and how things worked, interning at John Deere helped me transition from an academic perspective to hands-on application of what I learned. My job duties included cleaning and analyzing agricultural data and finding ways to use these results in the company's apps and products."
—Nandana Nallapu (MS '18)
"We like the variety of backgrounds and level of maturity represented by the iSchool MS/IM candidates. The combination of her professional experience before graduate school, her research since coming to Illinois, and the coursework of the iSchool made Nandana a great addition to our team."
—Mark Moran, Associate Director and Manager of Data-Driven Innovation, John Deere Technology
