The Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame is launching two new one-year graduate degree programs in January 2015. The Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) and the Master of Science in Finance (MSF), both designed for working professionals, will be offered at Notre Dame’s Chicago campus at 224 S. Michigan Ave.
"The demand for targeted degree programs delivered in a one-year format has surged in recent years, as working professionals seek educational opportunities that suit their lifestyles and career needs," said Roger Huang
, Martin J. Gillen Dean of the Mendoza College. "The programs we offer will fill a strong need for both leaders in finance, as well as those who understand the implications of big data. This trend also speaks to the expanding reach of business, which in turn creates a demand for people who can think strategically within specific disciplines."
The Master of Science in Business Analytics is an intense 30-credit-hour program for working professionals of all levels. The program’s goal is to provide a rigorous education in applying analytical techniques to massive data sets to solve business problems - knowledge that has become critically important due to revolutionary advances in information technology.
Students will attend classes at Notre Dame’s downtown Chicago campus on alternating weekends, plus three extended sessions at the Stayer Center for Executive Education on the Notre Dame campus in South Bend. The coursework will emphasize business applications, so that students will gain experience in solving real-world problems. The program will follow a blended learning format, with about 25 percent of the material delivered online.
