As part of your Master in Business Analytics, you will have the opportunity to take one elective of your choice once you have successfully completed all of the core courses.
The electives listed here should be taken as a sample. We strive to keep our electives as up-to-date as possible so courses are subject to change and different electives are offered at each of our campuses.
This course will introduce students to the history and fundamentals of data science with an emphasis on the possibilities and limitations of data-scientific approaches to human problems. Important questions will be asked alongside a broad overview of data science tools and applications. Who owns the data? How is privacy valued and protected? What disclosures are data users owed? Can algorithms be trusted, and, to the extent they are fallible, what is the responsibility to improve their accurate interpretability?
1-credit electives in the technologies changing our future.
Our new and innovative nano courses give you the option to enroll in a number of elective courses designed to teach you about the disruptive technologies most dramatically influencing tomorrow’s business landscape. These courses are shorter—which is why we call them "nano." You can take three nano courses in place of a standard-length elective course.
Understand the forces of disruption
Our nano courses offer the opportunity to understand the technologies that are driving exponential change in the world—and their potential impact on business and life. Each nano course has been built in conjunction with a world-renowned industry expert and covers the basics of how the technology works, its potential applications, the major players driving the technology, the likely development timeline, and the key issues which need to be overcome for the full potential to be realized.
A self-led approach
Nano courses are self-led online courses which you can take in place of regular electives. Each course covers a different disruptive technology and is designed to help you explore how that technology could impact the future. You’ll demonstrate your learning through coursework, which will be assessed by a professor. You can take three nano courses in place of one regular elective course.
Position yourself for the future
You don’t build a business for where the world is today, you build a business for where the world will be tomorrow. Understanding the latest developments in technology will help you anticipate how the world may change over time and how consumer behavior may change. For example, did you know that autonomous vehicles may radically impact real estate prices?
