Analytics, Leadership, and Innovation pathway
An MBA for breakthroughs.
Earn your MBA today and propel your career for years to come. Hone the analytic skills to identify opportunities and challenges hidden in data and the leadership skills to implement your data-driven strategies. Gain the innovation skillset to navigate an uncertain world. And depending on your career goals, customize your education to emphasize leadership or innovation.
The most effective leaders can’t expect success from data analysis alone. They engage, lead, and negotiate with the people around them to implement their data-driven insights. And they know they can’t just engage, lead, and negotiate without the power of data. Otherwise, they run the risk of perpetuating ineffective or ill-informed strategies. Discover the powerful synergy between analytics and leadership and put your learning into practice through experiential courses such as Innovation Field Project.
