New MS Programs

 

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.

According to McKinsey & Co., the U.S. is facing a shortfall of 140,000 to 190,000 big data experts between now and 2018. The masters in business analytics degree program provides a foundation for careers related to big data, statistical modeling and predictive analytics. Career opportunities for business analytics graduates include pricing and revenue optimization specialist, business systems analyst and data analyst.

Classes are offered both on ground and online for this STEM-designated program. To learn more, visit udallas.edu/businessanalytics.

U.S. companies continue to be confident in global expansion, with many expecting to increase their international planning and development efforts through 2015 and beyond. The masters in global business degree is designed for students who want to pursue careers related to managing in a global environment for financial institutions, international organizations and government entities. Career opportunities for global business graduates include international management consultant, import/export agent, cultural advisor and management analyst.
