Curriculum overview

Program Overview

The Analytics MBA at Stevens is structured around three areas of greatest need for the leaders of tomorrow's technology-driven organizations, who must be able to speak the language of business, understand how to apply new innovations within business units and across the enterprise, and interpret data to identify trends and make strategic recommendations. Classes give you a broad set of skills that are applicable in any industry.

The curriculum is further enhanced by intensive mentorship and leadership training, ensuring students graduate as well-rounded professionals who understand how the technical and specialized aspects of the company serve as drivers for future growth.

The Analytics MBA isn’t just a classroom experience — it’s a fully immersive, technology-intensive learning lab where you’ll collaborate on group projects, prepare in-depth presentations, develop your personal growth and build real-world experience in the workplace. Frequent collaboration and extracurricular opportunities will help you build a meaningful network with your fellow students that will extend into your professional career.

Foundational Courses

These foundational courses are designed to provide management principles to students from non-business backgrounds who do not have prior training in accounting, finance, and statistics. Students may be exempt from these courses with relevant work history or an undergraduate business degree. Please check with an academic advisor for determination.

These three courses can be taken prior to the start of Analytics MBA classes.

The Analytics MBA program at Stevens is available on campus or fully online.

Language of Business

One of the greatest points of frustration for technical employees is an inability to influence decision-making, as they are unable to translate their findings in ways that resonate with the C-suite. Courses in this block go beyond the basics to give you thorough command of how to understand scientific and technical advances from the viewpoint of a manager who must carefully deploy limited resources to ensure the pursuit of truly innovative developments.

Leadership and Innovation

Courses in this block are designed to work in tandem with the curricular thread of personal development, nurturing aspiring leaders to think critically about problems and creatively about resources in order to attack corporate missions with fearlessness.

Analytical Thinking

Most technical professionals are capable analysts who are most comfortable delving into technical, rather than financial or managerial, challenges. Courses in this block emphasize highly advanced analytics techniques that will teach you the ways successful managers look at and use data in understanding how markets work and making better recommendations to guide the enterprise.

Industry Capstone Program

After completing the rest of the curriculum, students complete the MGT 809 Industry Capstone Program.

This three-credit course trains graduate students in the application of tools and methods used by management consultants to provide advisory services to clients. Students will work on an industry project with a team of their peers. They will scope and plan the underlying project, develop a statement of work, and design and deliver status update presentations. Students will learn how to facilitate meetings with different groups of stakeholders over the course of the project, manage client expectations, and apply their disciplinary and technical knowledge to the project.
