The Universal Business School and the University of Dallas have signed an agreement to offer its students AACSB Accredited Master’s degree in Business Analytics (STEM Degree) that is recognised in India and the USA.
The programme will provide students with an opportunity to learn business analytics skills and first-hand exposure to a range of tech, tools, and software like Jupyter, Tableau, Python, SQL, Big Data, Advance Business Analytics, Database. It is going to be offered on the campus of Universal Business School as an eight-month full-time residential or hybrid programme, i.e. online plus six campus visits.
It will also offer an MS in Business Analytics at the University of Dallas for one year. For full-time students who do not want to pursue MS, they will be given an exit option after the completion of eight months and a four-month internship from Universal Business School. They will also be awarded a Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) by the Universal Business School in Data Science and Business Analytics.
Tarun Anand, chairman and founder, Universal Business School, “The idea is to bring international best practices to Indian students who will get an opportunity to learn from the brightest American minds with expertise in the highly in-demand field of Business Analytics. They will get an American STEM degree that will prepare them to hone influence strategy, processes, and decision making by exploring relationships through data analysis.”
Anand also said, “Analytics and digital technologies are deeply embedded in the way the world does business. Also, adaptability, the ability to reflect, learn, and collaborate across silos is becoming increasingly critical and this requires tech and soft skills that we have included in the course curriculum.”
The programme is good for those who have an analytical aptitude and want to make a career in analytics. It is also for those working professionals who wish to make advanced quantitative skills.
