The University of Amsterdam's Amsterdam Business School has announced that it will offer an MBA in Big Data and Business Analytics, beginning next year.

The MBA will combine coverage of core business topics like finance and marketing with analytics-specific curriculum such as statistics, econometrics, and artificial intelligence. 

"The MBA in Big Data & Business Analytics is intended for hands-on big data experts, consultants, leaders in data-intensive industries and entrepreneurs in big data and business analytics," according to a statement from the business school.

The program will be delivered in a part-time format with classes held two nights per week. It will take two years to complete the program. As part of the MBA, students will also have the opportunity to take a study trip to Silicon Valley.

The program is set to launch in September 2015. To apply for the MBA in Big Data and Business Analytics, interested candidates should have a bachelor's or master's degree and a solid quantitative background. A minimum GMAT score of 630 is also required.

The application deadline for the 2015 intake is June 30th. For more information, please see the Amsterdam Business School press release announcing the launch of the MBA in Big Data and Business Analytics.
