NYU Stern M.S. In Business Analytics Program Holds Module In Shanghai

Seventy business analytics students traveled to Shanghai for a key module in their M.S. in Business Analytics program.

In a press release, NYU noted that in the interest and pursuit of deeper understanding of how big data increases competitive advantage, 70 energetic business analytics students visited Shanghai for a key module in their MS in Business Analytics (MSBA) program.

nyu-sternStudents are allowed to participate in the one-year, hybrid modular program which holds a total of five on-site intensive in-class modules.

Students spend two weeks in New York for the first module, a week each in London and Shanghai for the second and third modules before they return to NYU Stern in New York to complete their remaining classes and present their capstone projects.

In addition to the in-class modules, students spend an average of 20-25 hours per week on group projects and individual work.

Students represent a broad spectrum of sectors including financial services, nonprofit, health, education, and IT.

Students are also required to study quantitative methods while learning about the role of evidence-based data and modeling to support strategic business goals.

The program’s unique perspective is to create a cohort of professionals who can serve as business leaders who can leverage the power of data for competitive advantage. With courses like Decision Under Risk, students learn how to apply the right tools and skills to creative solutions for a wide range of business problems.
