MSBA Alumni

Monika Raghuvanshi, a graduate of the Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) program, takes pride in being a Cal Poly Pomona (CPP) Bronco. Coming from a Computer Science and Engineering background, Monika shared that the MSBA program had completed her as a skilled data-driven storyteller.

Under the guidance of esteemed professors and alongside her talented peers, Monika’s MSBA academic journey was enriched with hands-on experiences, cultivating practical problem-solving skills, and collaborative teamwork. During her program, Monika worked on numerous noteworthy projects such as the University Advancement Business Analytics Project, Meta Reality Labs Analytics Project, the identification of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation on Twitter through text analytics, and using regression analysis to identify investment opportunities in the California hotel real estate market.  

These projects deepened her understanding of her coursework and its real-world implementation, which led to her current role as a Business Intelligence Developer at Tri Pointe Homes. Monika encourages current and incoming MSBA students to nurture their curiosity and maintain a relentless pursuit of knowledge.


Students who have completed the MITx MicroMasters program in Supply Chain Management, Statistics and Data Science, Data, Economics & Development Policy, or Principles of Management programs may be eligible to transfer up to 9 semester units toward this degree upon meeting the admissions requirements.
