Read the data. Tell the story. Make the decision.
What’s the biggest untapped resource any business has today? Data.
What’s the biggest puzzle businesses face? Figuring out how to harness their data and use it to make decisions.
Data makes a business smarter and more profitable—but it’s useless without talent that “gets” analytics. Lucky you. An MBA with a business analytics concentration delivers the precise set of skills and experience employers are scrambling for.
You’ll know how to ask the right questions and extract the best insights. How to expertly tell the story revealed by your data, visually and in a boardroom-style presentation.
The best part about an MBA in business analytics? Every industry and every functional area needs you. Product development, finance, and logistics...consumer products, financial services, and nonprofit. Their data needs to point them to opportunities and warn them of pitfalls, guiding strategy. As keeper of the data insights, you’ll be a key player in all of it.
