MSBA Students Gain Access to New Internship Opportunity With Synchrony

Fairfield Dolan’s solid relationship with Synchrony, a consumer financial services company, has yielded another golden opportunity for Master in Business Analytics (MSBA) students: the chance to participate in the Synchrony Co-Op Program, a highly-selective, paid internship program that will be offered to select MSBA students in September.

“This Co-Op Program is a win-win,” says MSBA Program Director Philip Maymin, PhD. “Students will be commuting to Synchrony’s headquarters in Stamford, Conn., working with Synchrony data, and using what they are learning in class to analyze that data and solve typical business problems. They’ll be part of a team, and ideally can use the research they’re doing at Synchrony as their capstone project. And Synchrony will get to know the students well before some may decide to apply for a full-time position.” Interested students can apply to the program over the summer.

Business analytics is the process of using data and critical analysis to solve business programs. “Students come to us with different backgrounds. Many have work experience, and others are strong in statistics or programming. But the most important quality for success is to have an analytical mindset,” says Dr. Maymin. And coming this fall, students will have the option to take the program fully online.

Synchrony Bank, Synchrony’s online bank subsidiary, has been a strong supporter of the MSBA program since its inception. The bank’s SVP of Digital Insight and Analytics, Sharada Muthusubramanian, is a member of the MSBA Advisory Board. The company also boasts many Fairfield alumni including SVP of Customer Solutions and Fairfield Dolan Advisory Board Chair Sue Davis-Gillis MBA’03, and SVP of Supplier Management, Card Processing and Loyalty Systems and Dolan Professional-in-Residence Kim Tully ’89.
