MBA data analytics
Masters of Business Administration (STEM M.B.A.)

Business Analytics

From health and science to retail and finance, big data is driving and changing every aspect of our world today — especially in business. Advanced technology now allows companies to gather and store massive amounts of data more easily than ever before. But businesses are all facing the same dilemma: how to harness that data once they have it.

All over the globe, companies are searching for leaders who can use data to solve problems strategically and make effective business decisions. Our STEM M.B.A. in Business Analytics prepares you to do exactly that. Offering equally solid foundations in both business processes and data analytics, our program develops managers and executives whose skills will be in high demand. Graduates are as comfortable communicating with managers as they are with quantitative analysts. And we keep the entire program, offered on campus and online, streamlined to just 40 credits.

STEM Designated Program

By 2028 it is estimated that there will be more than a million jobs in the STEM field. In preparation, this STEM designated program will equip you to utilize technology, data and business analytics to make effective business decisions and solve complex business problems.

The STEM designation offers an additional benefit by allowing international students to apply to extend their 12-month optional practical training (OPT) by an additional 24 months.

What Can You Do With an MBA in Business Analytics?

With an MBA in Business Analytics, you can translate vast data sets into strategic business decisions, becoming a pivotal asset to any data-driven organization. You could take on roles such as Business Analyst, Data Analyst, Management Consultant, or Analytics Manager, using data insights to optimize processes, enhance customer experiences, or drive growth. This degree also prepares you for leadership roles, where you could oversee data analytics departments or lead cross-functional teams in projects that require sophisticated data interpretation and result-oriented business solutions.

What are the career opportunities for International Students with a STEM-Designated M.B.A. in Business Analytics?

International students with a STEM-designated MBA in Business Analytics have robust career opportunities in the U.S., often sought after for positions like Data Analyst, Business Intelligence Analyst, or Analytics Consultant in sectors ranging from finance to healthcare. Their ability to stay in the U.S. for up to three years post-graduation without an H-1B visa, thanks to the extended OPT, increases their chances of securing positions that require advanced analytical and quantitative skills.
