Stephanie (Deacon) Smith

M.S. in Business Analytics

Why did you choose Grove City for graduate school?
My undergraduate degree is from GCC (class of 2003!), and I greatly enjoyed my time at Grove City. I had been interested in the field of business analytics, so when I saw that Grove City had started a graduate program, I knew it would be a great fit for me.

What have you liked most about your experience with the Grove City graduate program?
The people are the best part of Grove City. The faculty are incredible. The coursework is challenging, but I feel supported every step of the way. I’ve also enjoyed my (virtual) interactions with my classmates. It’s truly a positive and supporting learning environment.

Would you recommend Grove City for graduate school to your friends, and if so, why?
I earned my last degree in 2005, so it’s been 16 years since I’ve taken an academic course. I have felt both supported and encouraged along the way. In the course that I’m taking right now, Dr. Smith does a fantastic job breaking down tough concepts and is very available for assistance.
