A rapidly growing field.
There are significant opportunities in analytics right now.
The world’s top employers have a wealth of data available to them and they’re looking for highly skilled professionals to help them interpret it. And, more importantly, act on it. With a Master of Business Analytics (MBAN) from UBC Sauder School of Business’ Robert H. Lee Graduate School, you will build on your quantitative background and be prepared to do exactly that in just nine months.
An MBAN from UBC isn’t just about technical knowhow; it captures the full analytics spectrum, from data management to data analytics to decision analytics. Which means by the time you graduate you will be able to make strategically sound recommendations and data-driven business decisions.
In a recent survey conducted by the Globe and Mail, 96% of North American and British companies surveyed said analytics will become more important to their organization in the next three years. They also cited a shortage of analytical talent as a stumbling block.
With an MBAN from UBC Sauder, you will be prepared to fill the market’s need for highly skilled analytical talent. The opportunity here is not just for a career in analytics, but a career in an emerging field where you will have the skills to shape future business decisions.
Beyond the technical skills and the business acumen that you’ll acquire, you’ll also have the option to gain real work experience through an Analytics Consulting Internship. Administered by UBC Sauder’s own Centre of Operations Excellence (COE), this internship will give you the opportunity to broaden your skills in a real business environment.
Since 1998, COE has been establishing partnerships with top brands and employers, which means UBC MBAN candidates will benefit from its rich network of industry partners and professionals. Among these partnerships are Boeing Vancouver, Fraser Health Authority, LifeLabs, Rick Hansen Institute, Telus, Tree Island Steel Inc., and WorksafeBC
