Under faculty member Dr. Alexander Traugutt’s leadership, Fontbonne has launched an online Master of Business Administration in Applied Business Analytics.
“This is an ideal degree for a professional looking to learn new methods for utilizing data to inform decision making,” explains Traugutt. “The word ‘applied’ is paramount, as we work with real data from various functional business areas to understand the ways in which this information can impact organizations in a practical manner.”
The courses begin Fall 2019 and will be offered in 8-week increments. They include Analytic Decision Making: Risk and Uncertainty; Data Visualization and Strategy; Applied Time Series Forecasting and Analysis; Game Theory and Business Strategy; Revenue Analytics and Pricing Management; and Applications of Applied Business Analytics.
Dun & Bradstreet commissioned research to explore the data experiences of over 500 businesses in the UK and U.S. The report shares that data has extraordinary potential in the years ahead. With new technologies on the horizon, businesses will be able to turn that data into incredibly valuable insights about their customers, their supply chains, and themselves.
