Professional MBA: Business Analytics Concentration

The Business Analytics concentration helps professionals gain a competitive advantage through the sound use of data resources. Courses offer a solid grounding in applied statistical methods, emphasizing use of appropriate software tools. Students also have an opportunity to see how these methods are used in current practice in a particular business area. Exposure to real data takes place in concentration courses, an optional internship, and other graduate courses where students with quantitative skills contribute to group consulting projects.
