The MBA in Business Analytics is designed to provide an extensive base of knowledge of managerial responsibilities. An MBA program is designed for students who desire a more general management background than an MS in Business Analytics, which has more of a specialization and focus in the field.

About

Career opportunities after you complete the MBA program through the Department of Information Technology and Decision Sciences are abundant. An MBA with a concentration in Business Analytics supports growth and development from two perspectives. One, if you have an established career path, the Business Analytics concentration provides you the opportunity to gain the broader, more general perspective necessary for promotion to leading managerial positions.
