Business Analytics and Technologies
The Business Analytics and Technologies concentration aims to develop this managerial talent through a series of courses that cover methods for critical and analytical thinking, information technologies and tools for implementing these methods, and business applications that heavily employ these methods and technologies. Departing from the old approach of being the “quant skills” component of MBA education, this area is designed around a critical balance between general analytical thinking, technology, and applications. The design of the concentration is guided by a Business Advisory Board, comprising leading industry executives who are substantially invested in business applications of analytical methods and technologies. The Board will also facilitate the educational component (e.g., by providing practical problems for class projects) and knowledge transfer through student internships and career placement.
