Mike Marshall felt it was time to make some changes in his life. While working as a sales engineer in Washington, D.C. he realized he had hit a ceiling in advancement. He had gained some experience with measurements and metrics during his eight years in sales, and was interested in breaking into the world of business intelligence. He chose GW’s Data Analytics Boot Camp for the intensive curriculum designed to teach the technical skills he needed to analyze and solve real world data problems in just 24 weeks. The boot camp is offered through the GW College of Professional Studies, in collaboration with Trilogy Education Services, a 2U, Inc. brand.

The event was hosted by the GW Center for Excellence in Public Leadership (CEPL), and highlights the Center’s work elevating consciousness in the nation’s capital through its leadership and coaching programs that focus on whole-person development.
