Where did you get your MBA from?

I have been on data strategy projects which I understand isn't true strategy. Basically, I don't want to be a coder. I would like to create strategy plans and make data visualizations. Losing interest in creating data pipelines etc...

What is your education right now?

Bachelor's in Statistics - big ten school
