Business Analytics

The growing use of business analytics to drive business strategy and performance throughout organizations has created a parallel rising demand for individuals who understand how to use business analytics to solve business issues. Pursuing a graduate certificate or a graduate program focused on business analytics allows a student to articulate a deeper knowledge and applicable set of skills.The Business Analytics Initiative at Poole College brings together a set of analytics programs for students under one umbrella.

Graduate Business Analytics Preparation

The Poole College of Management offers three distinct analytics-focused programs for graduate students:

Business Analytics Certificate (Jenkins MBA)
Master of Management, Marketing Analytics
Master of Management, Risk and Analytics

The Business Analytics Certificate provides students with advanced skills and techniques to address both specific and industry-wide business problems. The certificate is a standalone option for Jenkins MBA students, and also serves as the core foundation of courses for the two Master of Management programs, on which additional courses in marketing and risk management are added, respectively.
