DeGroote to Launch an Executive MBA in Digital Transformation

EMBA will touch on strategic aspects of analytics, data collection, and more

The Canada-based McMaster University DeGroote School of Business has announced plans to launch a new Executive MBA program in "Digital Transformation."

The new EMBA program will help participants address the influx of digital innovations in business with new strategic approaches and organizational structures.

The program will be delivered through four residential modules, each covering different aspects of digital transformation and spread out over 13 months.

In module one, students will develop a foundation in core management, and start thinking about translating insights into action. The second module will focus on how big data and analytical-driven approaches are reshaping the world of marketing and opening up new opportunities.

Module three will explore organizational leadership challenges, and the final module will tie everything together.

The EMBA will also include a capstone course, where students will work in teams to apply the learning to a real digital transformation issue.

To apply for the program, students should have a four-year bachelor's degree with a B-average in the two final years of study. "Considerable work experience" is also required. 

The registration cut-off to start in the fall of 2016 is July 15, 2016.

DeGroote is the first AACSB-accredited Canadian business school to offer a specialized EMBA program in this space. However, schools like Brock University's Goodman School of Business and the Queen's School of Business offer MBA concentrations in business analytics.

FIND MBA lists DeGroote as a top business school for a career in business analytics.
