Master of Business Administrations (Business Analytics Concentration), MBA
As organizations continue to generate, collect, and, store enormous amounts of data, it becomes imperative to analyze historical, current, and predictive views of business operations to better manage enterprise performance. While a general MBA program focuses on the skills necessary for running a business, a concentration in Business Analytics equips students with the knowledge and skills to use Business Analytics to convert available data into useable and actionable information. A concentration in Business Analytics enables an MBA student to gain a competitive edge by learning critical skills needed to use Business Analytics to improve decision making and performance in a dynamic and intensely competitive environment.
Completion of this program will enable students to enhance their knowledge and skills in Business Analytics. Students will be better prepared to take on the challenges of putting data to use to enhance decision making and performance such that the organization continues to succeed, grow, and, remain relevant and competitive.
