University of St. Thomas to Offer New Flex MBA Programs and Analytics Concentration

St. Thomas is the latest school to announce a new business analytics concentration

The University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis announced that it will roll out two new flexible MBA programs this year, as well as a new data science master's degree. 

One of the flexible MBA programs will be geared towards working professionals who can't drop out of the workforce for two years. In this option, called the Part-Time Flex MBA, students will take evening and weekend classes for between two and seven years to complete the program. The other flexible MBA program, the Full-Time Flex MBA, allows students to take electives to further specialize their degrees. 

St. Thomas is also offering a new master's degree in data science, making the university the latest in a series of schools to roll out this popular degree. Wake Forest University, Syracuse University and Virginia Tech have all announced the implementation of similar programs this year alone, and Cal Poly, UC San Diego and Arizona State University have rolled out similar programs in the past few years. Like the programs at these other schools, St. Thomas' program will address the growing demand for business professionals who understand how to analyze data.
