Fox School Announces Two New MBA Concentrations
Students will be given the opportunity to choose from new programming in Business Analytics or Enterprise Risk Management.
Fox’s Risk Management program is highly regarded as one of the best in the nation. In the new Enterprise Risk program, MBAs will earn training in the design and implementation of processes that help organizations drive effective decision making. Students will also acquire skills in the improvement of traditional risk mitigation decisions.
Dr. M. Michael Zuckerman, director of the concentration and Assistant Professor of Risk, Insurance and Healthcare Management said, “This concentration will provide MBA candidates with the concepts and tools to develop advanced organizational risk management capabilities and pursue executive responsibility for managing enterprise-wide risks.”
The Business Analytics program will offer MBAs training in the use of modeling and data to improve organizational efficiency. Dr. Eric Eisenstein, Assistant Professor of Marketing and Supply Chain Management, will direct the program. He said:
“Business Analytics concentrators will meet the growing demand for talent in the areas of managing, analyzing, predicting, and discovering insights from the complex data that is available to modern corporations… Data-driven decision-making has been shown to have large positive effects on outcomes of interest to organizations of all types.”
