Inside Look Into MS in Business Analytics and Risk Management
The MS in Business Analytics and Risk Management program equips managers to improve decision-making processes based on a rigorous treatment of data and information using the management of risk as the underlying guide and framework. This program is designed to teach ways to: quantify multiple dimensions of hard business problems; analyze the structure and data related to those problems; and to create rigorous approaches based on that analysis to respond to problems. In each setting the management of the risks inherent in the business serves as the motivation and guide for the analysis. Coursework provides exposure to a variety of analytical tools along with many areas of risk management and integrates the concepts to enable managers to make better decisions for themselves and their organizations.
