Stern in Shanghai
Post date: Jul 23, 2012 8:41:10 AM
NYU Stern is now taking applications for a new master's degree in business analytics, which will start in May 2013. The curriculum will focus on data analysis and the use of modelling tools for business forecasting. Like many executive MBAs currently on the market, it will be modular, with 12 months' worth of coursework spread out over two years, and in-class sessions supplemented by online learning.
Also noteworthy is the location. While some classes will be in New York, some will be at NYU's new campus in Shanghai; in fact, the business-analytics students will the first to earn degrees at NYU Shanghai. East China Normal University will help host the first undergraduate class, scheduled to start in the fall of 2013, and the Chinese Ministry of Education has given its blessing to a range of degree programmes.
