MSDABC Company Visits: Summer 2019 in NYC

July 26, 2019

In addition to coursework, MS Data Analytics & Business Computing (MSDABC) students had the opportunity to visit two companies this summer while in New York. The visits are designed to expose students to companies, individuals, and industries related to their studies and future careers.

First, students visited Brooklyn Brewery located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. After touring the facility to learn how the beer is made and getting to taste various samples, students met with the company's data analyst to understand the role of data in growing a beer business.

The second visit was to American Express, where students met with three different employees: the company's Chief Audit Officer, Alan Gallo, who graduated from Stern with both a BS and MBA; the company's Vice President of Customer Data Science, who also earned a MBA at Stern; and lastly the Vice President of Global Consumer Marketing Data Science & Analytics, who earned her bachelor's degree from NYU. Pictured below are the students with Mr. Gallo.

Students will have the chance to visit more companies while in Shanghai this fall and spring.
