How did Bentley help you get to where you are today in your career?

Bentley opened me to a whole new world of leveraging data to run a business. I have been very successful at my job due to the efforts of the faculty, notably: Professor David Oury, Professor Mingfei Li, Professor Sam Woolford and Professor Lucia Kimball. They were my absolute favorite professors, and they helped me understand what the industry is looking for, then I decided to hone my skills on those industry topics.
