True to the school’s commitment to market readiness, Goizueta has added a credentialed STEM track as part of the business analysis major within its full-time MBA programs. To enhance proficiency in science, technology, engineering, and math, this new track will emphasize tech savviness, data literacy, analytical problem-solving abilities, and other expertise prized by today’s employers.
“The main driver for this addition in our programming is the clear direction of the global economy and the skills leaders will need in the future,” said Brian Mitchell 00MBA, associate dean of full-time MBA programs. “This has led to significant growth in interest in STEM for younger students, which they bring with them to business school. Our faculty has always delivered a quantitatively rigorous curriculum, so credentialling a STEM track has been a natural evolution for them.”
Students who choose the new STEM track will complete electives that give them a deeper understanding of the tools necessary for analyzing business decisions and more experience applying those tools to real-world challenges.
“For those choosing to pursue careers in STEM-related fields,” said Mitchell, “this credential will be a competitive advantage in the marketplace.” Goizueta also offers a STEM-credentialed MS in Business Analytics degree
