MSBA/MMS Dual Degree

Gain insight into how data preparation is vital to implementing business analytics—the foundation for making analytics-driven decisions to solve business problems in a wide range of industries.

In a much shorter time frame than pursuing each degree subsequently—often as little as four full-time semesters—this unique dual degree program will help you become an effective analyst, strategist, communicator, and manager. Learn how to apply your data analytics knowledge across business functions, allowing you to provide unique value to companies from all sectors while also preparing for leadership roles drawing upon tangible interpersonal skills that are relevant to all business settings.
