South Carolina's Clemson University to Launch an MBA in Analytics

New program to launch in the fall of 2016

South Carolina's Clemson University will launch an MBA program in analytics beginning next year.

The program is designed to help management-minded students understand the fundamentals of big data.

“The type of student seeking this degree will need core management skills, but will also need to feel comfortable processing data and making business decisions on large masses of that data,” according to Jason Thatcher, the director of Clemson’s Social Analytics Institute.

“It’s where businesses are headed and what employers are wanting from employees today. This new MBA curriculum will enable Clemson’s business school to deliver a more holistic business education experience to students.”

With the new program, Clemson joins a growing number of US schools offering analytics-oriented MBAs. Just this year, schools like Tulane University's Freeman School of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology's Scheller College of Business and the University of Tampa's Sykes College of Business have all announced new MBA concentrations in analytics.

The growth in the number of programs is related to an increase in the demand for MBA graduates who understand analytics.

Clemson University is accredited by AACSB International. The school also offers a general MBA program and a specialized MBA in Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

The school's new MBA in analytics is set to launch next fall.
