The Art of Analysis

  • The Art of Analysis

    Michelle's Story

  • I’m a performer and a business analyst.

    What I love about performing is the way people react when you do well.

  • My creative side wasn’t being used in my job as an Executive Assistant at a tech company. I kept thinking, how is this using my artistic voice? How is this causing a positive reaction?

  • From my desk in Toronto, I knew I wanted to be learning through UBC Continuing Studies. I could do the Certificate in Business Analysis online. It was perfect—the online format allowed me to study on the go.

  • I got to start working as a junior Business Analyst while I studied. Right away I was applying lessons to my work. My classmates helped me solve real work scenarios at work. The instructors gave such helpful insight. This program was showing me a whole world of business challenges waiting to be solved creatively.

  • I realized that here, in the tech field, I could realize my dreams of creativity and influence in my work. After all, business analysis is really all about communicating with people and influencing the shape of things. Every day is a performance.
