New MS Programs in Business Analytics, Global Business to Begin Fall 2015
The University of Dallas Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business will offer two
new Master of Science programs business analytics and global business beginning
this fall. Applications are now being accepted for the fall 2015 term.
Responding to the rise of big data, the university's Master of Science program in
business analytics will provide students with the training and technical skills to
devise strategies and make business decisions based on available information. Graduates
of the 30-credit-hour program will be well-versed in the complexities of decision-making
using quantitative and qualitative data, and skilled in data management, data mining
and visualization, and predictive modeling.
As the business world becomes increasingly fast-paced and interconnected, it is critical
that business leaders develop the necessary skills to manage in a global environment.
The university's 30-credit-hour masters in global business equips professionals with
an education in analytics, strategy, finance, marketing and supply chain management
concentrated in the global arena.
With big data projected to be a more than $50 billion industry by 2016 and the incredible
growth of Internet connected devices, or the Internet of Things, in the last five
years, the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business programs in business analytics
and global business will empower business students from around the world to respond
to these emerging market needs, said Interim Dean Brett J. L. Landry.
