First, we mastered marketing and analytics. Then we pioneered STEM management education. Now we are taking our analytics expertise online with the launch of a new Online Masters of Science in Business Analytics for Managers. With data transforming every industry, this program targets both current and aspiring managers, supplying them with the critical skills and tools necessary for success. Our reputation for excellence in analytics and leadership development has long preceded us. That’s why we’re confident we will deliver a program that enables managers to advance their careers. To adapt to the changes in how we live and work, this online curriculum was developed to provide access to a top-tier Master’s program with world-renowned Simon faculty, regardless of a student’s location.
“Businesses today need managers who can harness the power of analytics to make data-informed decisions, manage risks and increase efficiencies,” said Sevin Yeltekin, Dean of the Simon Business School. “This program will teach managers how best to evaluate investments in analytics, determine which tools and data are most critical, and leverage the results to support company goals and add value to their organization.”
Designed specifically to meet the needs of working professionals in management roles or aspiring managers, the structure of the program allows for completion in just 14 months. Though offered online, the program includes in-person opportunities that foster peer relationships, encourage collaboration with faculty, and link students with industry leaders in analytics. These occur at the beginning, middle and end of the program to keep a strong thread of connection for students. Supporting career goals is a top priority. Every student will receive career coaching and support from our fully-endowed Benet Career Management Center to ensure they are positioned for professional success.
“The Online Masters of Science in Business Analytics for Managers is unique in design and will provide students the practical and relevant training they need to succeed and take their career to the next level,” said Mitch Lovett, Senior Associate Dean, Education and Innovation. “This is a virtual program with a very high touch, including direct connection and support from faculty, opportunities for immersion and collaboration, an intimate cohort, a peer network, and in-person opportunities.”
The program augments and complements our full suite of Master’s programs, including the full-time MBA, and full-time Masters of Science programs in Accountancy, Finance, Business Analytics, and Marketing.
