London Business School Announces New Masters in Analytics and Management
The 12-month LBS Masters in Analytics and Management, according to the business school, “is designed for top graduates with a quantitative degree or work experience, who want to combine a detailed knowledge of data analytics, with the ability to translate big data into bold visions and profit-maximising business strategy.”
The LBS Masters in Analytics and Management (MAM) will be the fifth official specialized master’s program provided by the business school, alongside the Masters in Management and Global Masters in Management (MiM), the Masters in Finance (MiF), and Masters in Financial Analysis (MFA). In a recent press release announcing the newest program addition, LBS’ Associate Professor of Management Science and Operations Tolga Tezcan, who will teach in the program, says:
“There is huge demand from the top recruiters for managers who are not only data literate, but who also have the vision to see how big data can be used to create real competitive edge, product or service transformation. That’s why we’re combining subjects like machine learning and data visualisation with organisational behaviour.”
In the release, Gareth Howells, LBS Executive Director, MAM, Degree Education & Career Centre, also adds, “Jumping into the vibrant London business environment, our students will experience data in action. Using real data to solve real problems on a live analytics project, they will learn how to translate the results of data analysis into insightful, high-impact business solutions.”
What Is The LBS Masters in Analytics and Management?
The program, according to the business school, is centered around a core of: “Data Analytics, Applied Statistics, Data Visualisation and Storytelling, Data Management, Digital Marketing, Data Science for Business, Machine Learning for Big Data, and Decision Technology.”
The school assures that hopeful entrants in the program must have “a strong degree in a quantitative subject such as Engineering, Maths and Sciences, Computing, Economics, Accounting, Finance or Business, and Management.”
About 95 percent of entrants in the program come from the international community, representing 50 countries worldwide. The school adds that about 96 percent of its graduates from the aforementioned Masters in Management program earned employment within three months of graduation, and that “we expect our new MAM graduates to hit the ground running, entering sought-after sectors like technology and consulting with similar levels of success.”
In addition, students in the program will have the option to undertake a fourth term, which will only be available for students on specific career treks. In the fourth term, which will cost additional fees not yet revealed by LBS, students can “pursue the option to take three additional elective courses or go on an international exchange with a top business school.”
