Program description:

The Full-time MBA program shows students how to use data to formulate better insights and get buy-in for their ideas. Simon’s emphasis on analytical thinking and economics has given students a new perspective on the role of data. They learn to make sure the questions being asked are the right ones.

The specialized MBA curriculum gives you the freedom to select MBA courses that suit your career ambitions with tracks in Finance, Consulting, Marketing, and General Management. Under these four tracks, we offer MBA specializations that bring together coursework, co-curricular learning opportunities, and career-building opportunities, as well as 10 minors that reinforce in-demand analytical skills.
