London Business School to Offer Masters in Analytics and Management Program

New early-career analytics program can be completed in as little as one year

London Business School (LBS) has announced that it will launch a master's in analytics program next year.

The new degree—a Masters in Analytics and Management—is aimed at graduates with a quantitative degree, or comparable work experience and aims to bridge the gap between data science and business value creation.

“Big Data would be meaningless without actionable results,” says Tolga Tezcan, associate professor of management science and operations.

“That takes talented managers schooled in the philosophy of experimentation, who understand the problems big data can solve, and how to translate it into a compelling story that both senior management and shareholders will buy into.”

The core curriculum covers a range of topics that stretch from analytics to management. Some core classes include "Decision Technology," "Data Management," "Strategy," and "Marketing," among others. Students can also round-out their studies with electives such as "Strategic Innovation," "Supply Chain Management," and "Fin Tech."

The Masters in Management in Analytics and Management can be completed in one year. However, students can extend the program to 16 months with extra electives, a summer internship, and and international exchange program.

The Masters in Management in Analytics and Management joins LBS' roster of early-career management programs. The school also offers a Masters in Management, a Global Masters in Management, and a Masters in Financial Analysis.
