Osei is pursuing his master’s degree in Data Science at Loyola because the university’s small class sizes, emphasis on a quality education, and commitment to social justice all appealed to him. He particularly loved Introduction to Data Science, a course taught by Gloria Phillips-Wren, Ph.D., professor of information systems, because it provided a solid foundation for the program. Originally born in Ghana and raised in Laurel, Md., Osei holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Maryland, College Park. He previously worked as a business intelligence analyst before founding his startup, POKU CAPITAL, a small investment firm that buys and sells stocks, bonds, commodities, and cryptocurrency. He hopes to utilize his data science knowledge to build better financial and risk models that will increase profit margins for POKU CAPITAL. “I am very interested in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). I wanted to get into data science to learn more about AI, machine learning, and other advanced programming tools. I see myself being able to use all the skills I have learned so far in this program in my career.”

I would strongly recommend Loyola's Data Science program to anyone who is interested in the field. It is demanding—but it is great for being able to balance work and school.
