dc.description.abstract I attended Purdue University Global on a Gift of Knowledge scholarship, graduating in June 2021 with a master’s degree in Information Technology and a concentration in Business Intelligence and Analytics. I have been a Systems Analyst for a large electric cooperative for seventeen years, programming in several different languages and serving as webmaster. In this presentation, I will discuss the benefits of this degree program that go beyond the technical knowledge learned, including how to conduct research, professional writing, effective communication, how to give powerful presentations, and collaboration on team projects (Ravisankar, 2020). Many people only see the technical side of IT, but the skills that go beyond this are just as important in helping me achieve my career goals with my employer. In addition, learning about and applying the project development life cycle has given me the skills to manage large projects on my own (Schiff, 2017). en_US
