Student who needs some advises for a BA career  

Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum and I recently started my master degree of business analytics in Chicago after finishing my undergrad in Canada. I was studying economy and maths before and I am pretty new to this career area. After I decided to study toward a  BA, I took some online courses about BA background knowledge and basic technical skills(java, python, machine learning basic, R ,SQL,DDL,etc in basic level with some simple project experience). Here is my linkedin profile link.

I am an international student and I am new to Chicago this summer to process my Master degree at UIC now. I would like to learn any of your experience in North America as a BA/ marketing analyst /DS  and I hope that I could build up my social network here with  you guys. Thank you so much

good luck, whatever you choose.
