    Default both for which - which for both?

    I am having some serious trouble phrasing this sentence...

    "I wish expand my analytical skills and the ability to think strategically both for which this program at ABC University is well-known"

    Can anyone please help me? I am in a loop here, trying to fit both, which and for in different positions, but none really work

    cheers

    It's a bit clunky even with the correction. I would be inclined to split this into two sentences.

    I want to expand my analytical skills and my ability to think strategically. The program at ABC University is well-known for facilitating both.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Thanks a lot, the split sentence sounds really much better
