The Specialized Master in Business Analytics (SMB-A) curriculum combines an understanding of business with an understanding of analytics methods and techniques.  This produces data-savvy business leaders and consultants with expertise in how to use analytics and lead analytics initiatives in business.  By bridging the gap between business knowledge and computing/technical knowledge, our academic curriculum prepares students to credibly lead initiatives in business organizations from initial conception to full-scale implementation and deployment.
