Utica College is committed to providing MBA students with applicable and translatable skills that can help them find high-level employment in the business world immediately after graduation. To achieve this, Utica offers a number of MBA specializations, in some of the most in-demand business sectors.
After completing the business core, you will select four graduate-level elective courses that will determine your specialization, or area of study. You may choose an advising specialization, developed by Utica College to meet the specific demands of business today, or customize your studies through our general MBA option, where you can select any four of the graduate-level elective courses offered.
The Data Analytics specialization focuses on two aspects of the data science field: using theoretical models in the collection, design, and analysis of quantitative and qualitative data, and the real-world process of creating and implementing solutions based on that data. Students will learn to be data thinkers by understanding the power of data, the limits of data analysis, and then apply their learning to projects. Projects encompass the whole data analysis process from data acquisition and wrangling, analysis, and conclude by communicating identified findings and solutions.
