best analytics program


I'm trying to decide on which MBA in analytics to apply for... I'm from the UK and there don't seem to be many in Europe, other than one in Amsterdam which is very new so I'm skeptical. So I suppose that the USA is where most are offered, and I've seen offerings from Temple and Carnegie Mellon. But then I wonder if an MS in analytics from a school like NYU wouldn't have a more substantial impact on my career... Anybody else considering any of these programs? I'm a bit on the undecided side.

What are your goals? I think a one-year MBA or a one-year masters in analytics would give you most of the benefit.

My goals are to integrate analytics into my managerial toolkit. I work in marketing and am increasingly exposed to data. I'd like to be able to make better sense of that, so that I can position myself for roles that have more responsibilities.

By one-year MBA, you mean a general program? Would an MBA from something like Cranfield or Imperial be sufficient, do you think?

Yes. Although It sounds to me like you want the content that is in an MSc in business and marketing analytics. Aston, Edinburgh and Lancaster all have specialist MSc degrees for that. Manchester and Warwick have a MSc Business Analytics which are also strong options.

Cheers, Duncan. I'll look into these MSc programs as well. Have a nice weekend.
