Newswise — Following the launch of the Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) program at the Wellesley campus, Babson College, ranked No. 1 for entrepreneurship, will now be offering the flexible part-time MSBA program at Babson San Francisco beginning in the spring of 2018.
The MSBA will offer a flexible program featuring face-to-face and online sessions. It has been specifically designed to prepare students to be the bridge between data and action. This program will continue to diversify the portfolio of offerings at the Babson San Francisco campus.
“We are proud to announce our new Master in Business Analytics program in San Francisco,” says Dean William B. Lamb. “As an institution on the cutting edge of business education, we recognize the important and growing role analytics play in business operations, globally. We are excited for our impact to not just be in Wellesley, but also on the West Coast.”
In as little as 18 months, students will become experts in the latest analytic techniques, obtaining the ability to interpret data for any organization. More importantly, students will develop collaboration and communication skills to help effectively convey the value of such information.
“The new Master in Business Analytics program will continue to broaden our offerings in the Bay Area,” says Lynn Santopietro, Director, Babson San Francisco. “We are excited to bring this unique degree to the Bay Area that combines business analytics with our entrepreneurial framework in a flexible format designed for working professionals.”
The program’s curriculum will go beyond IT and statistics, applying an interdisciplinary approach to ensure the development of critical technical skills and creative thinking to solve broader business and social issues. Plus, students will reinforce what is learned in the classroom through a real-world consulting project for an outside organization.
Both business and non-business majors are welcome to apply. The GMAT is waived for all eligible students for the inaugural programs in Wellesley and San Francisco.
