Unabashedly analytical academics tailored to your career goals.
Simon’s academics are world-renowned for their unabashedly analytical bias. We’ll show you how a deep understanding of economics, combined with an intensive quantitative focus, gives you a cohesive, evidence-based approach to decision-making. You’ll frame problems more effectively, uncover patterns that motivate and drive markets, and use data to persuade and inspire.
Simon’s Integrated Student Experience
Academics are an important part of our innovative Integrated Student Experience, which intentionally links your coursework, co-curricular activities, and career search to ensure you’re market-ready for your internship and full-time job.
An innovative career path.
Regarded as a world leader in quantitative, economics-based education, our MBA curriculum integrates analytics-based academics with hands-on opportunities to prepare for your career. Courses are designed to provide you with the tools to understand, explain, and predict business behaviors, while staying at the forefront of the global business marketplace.
Career Action Teams
When you arrive on campus, you’ll be placed into your Career Action Team, or CAT. These small groups, made up of students with similar career interests, advisors, and alumni, meet regularly throughout the program to share experiences, exchange insights, and network.
The Simon EDGE
To shore up your problem-solving, communication, teamwork, and leadership skills, you’ll also have the opportunity to participate in the Simon EDGE program, a comprehensive professional skill-building and competency-development curricular and co-curricular program that augments the technical skills you'll acquire in the classroom with personal development experiences.
By participating in project-based coursework with experiential components, you’ll be equipped to apply what you're learning in the classroom in a real-world setting. Simon also offers a number of opportunities for academic international immersions—which include a mix of coursework, discussions with local government and business leaders, and on-site visits to leading companies and organizations across the globe.
A career plan built around your interests.
Before your program begins, we’ll help you explore areas of study to find one that matches your interests and talents. We offer 10 specializations, in three tracks, for deep-dives into specific areas. Or, you can follow our general management track to choose from a broad selection of courses. You’ll have a personalized study plan based on your chosen specialization. Our newly redesigned curriculum allows you to focus on your area of specialty while also learning about the fundamental, big-picture topics that draw on Simon’s expertise in analytics and economics-based thinking. You can round out your education and gain an even deeper understanding of certain areas by earning a minor.
