The Board of Trustees of Clemson University in South Carolina has approved the launch of a new MBA concentration in Analytics.
Students in this concentration will learn how to use data analytics in a business context to make decisions. Leaders from Clemson business school have designed this concentration after discussions with professionals from the industry.
"Discussions with industry professionals made it clear there was a strong and unfulfilled need in the market for employees with management and analytical skills," said Greg Pickett, senior associate dean and director of MBA programs. "The MBA concentration in analytics will help fill knowledge gaps and give Clemson students a competitive edge in employment opportunities."
