Tulane - Freeman Adds MBA Concentration in Analytics

New focus area to cover topics in data mining, visualization, and more

Tulane University's Freeman School of Business has announced the launch of a new MBA concentration in Analytics.

The school promises that the new concentration will help students learn to manage issues surrounding data in their day-to-day business work.

"As the world becomes increasingly computerized and everything turns into data, we need to continuously enhance the skills we teach to help students keep up,” says Russ Robins, who teaches on the concentration.

“The analytics concentration gives students a very highly sought after skill set to put in their toolbox.”

Curriculum in the new concentration will include classes in marketing research, modeling and analytics, econometrics and forecasting, and advanced spreadsheet modeling. The concentration will address a wide range of topics in the discipline, including data mining, clustering, machine learning, visualization, and more.

Additionally, students who pursue the new concentration will learn R, which is an open-source statistical computing platform.

With the new concentration, Freeman joins a growing number of business schools offering MBA students the chance to integrate business analytics into their skillset. In March, the University of Tampa's Sykes College of Business announced that it would offer an MBA concentration in Business Analytics; and this fall, Amsterdam Business School will launch a specialized MBA in Big Data and Business Analytics.

Other business schools, like the University of Rochester's Simon Graduate School of Business Administration and Georgia State University's Robinson College of Business, offer Master of Science programs in the discipline.
