Through our Business Analytics specialization in the Bentley PhD program in Business, we guide potential applicants through the admission process and actively mentor PhD candidates in their research, teaching and networking activities. In particular, Business Analytics PhD candidates benefit from involvement in the Data Analytics Research Team (DART), and in consulting projects in the Center for Quantitative Analysis.
A particular strength of the department lies in interdisciplinary applied research, which is relevant to business practice. Possible projects could include business problems arising in areas such as marketing, finance, healthcare and economics that can be addressed through the innovative application of quantitative methodologies. Each project leverages expertise in cutting-edge quantitative methods to make a contribution both to the area of business analytics and the specific business area represented by the data used in the project.
