No one could have predicted a global pandemic or how it would fundamentally change the ways we live and work. But data analytics-insights into consumer behavior, buying patterns, even data on remote work patterns and employee satisfaction made it possible for companies to pivot and adapt.
The new Online MS in Business Analytics for Managers from Simon Business School is the latest advancement in analytically rigorous, leadership-focused education designed to help managers and aspiring managers prepare for the future of business-wherever it may lead. This online program format offers access to a top-tier Master’s program and the world-renowned Simon faculty, regardless of 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.”
This program was thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of working professionals who have grown accustomed to the convenience and flexibility of a virtual/remote environment. More importantly, it's meeting the needs of professionals reaching for success in one of the most challenging job markets we've seen in decades. While this is an online program, flexibility is key. The cohorts are small by design and programming deliberately includes in-person opportunities that foster peer relationships, encourage collaboration with faculty and link students with industry leaders.
“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.”
People are the critical force behind business decisions. Without skilled managers to analyze, interpret, and drive decision-making, data is just numbers. Simon's Online MS in Business Analytics for Managers provides the technical and leadership skills managers need to guide organizations. The program grounds managers in how to evaluate investments in analytics-which tools, data, and skills are most critical-and how to manage these investments-managing analytics teams, communicating analytics content, and leading with data.
