The Philadelphia-based Temple University Fox School of Business will launch MBA concentrations in Business Analytics and Enterprise Risk Management this fall, according to the school.
The new concentration in Business Analytics is designed to help students use data to make business decisions. Those who pursue this concentration, according to Eric Eisenstein, the concentration's director, "will meet the growing demand for talent in the areas of managing, analyzing, predicting, and discovering insights from the complex data that is available to modern corporations.”
The MBA concentration in Enterprise Risk Management will prepare MBA students to design processes that improve organizational strategic decision-making. “This concentration will provide MBA candidates with the concepts and tools to develop advanced organizational risk management capabilities and pursue executive responsibility for managing enterprise-wide risks,” according to M. Michael Zuckerman, the concentration’s director.
Also beginning this fall, the school will also launch a Master of Science in Business Analytics, a STEM-designated degree that can be pursued on either a full- or part-time basis. It's aimed at entry- to mid-level professionals who wish to transition into analytics roles or advance within their current position. The school is the latest of a number of US business schools that have recently launched masters degrees in analytics.
Temple - Fox is listed by FIND MBA as one of the top 10 business schools in the world for a career in business analytics or big data.
