Target MFM Class of 2011 Brooklyn Park, MN
Being from Minnesota with no desire to relocate, I like that the school and program is local, and has strong connections with local industry and different companies represented in the Twin Cities. The programming skills taught in the MFM have also been very valuable. The basics are covered well and can be translated to different programming languages, making it useful knowledge for any related career. In my job as an Analyst in the Business Intelligence and Analytics Group at Target I often have to do programming. Being taught by industry professionals has the added benefit of learning firsthand what work is really like outside of a classroom setting, as well as the different career opportunities available.
