Quality programs

open doors to graduate degrees
Why should you consider graduate school? Because studies show that career earnings for adults with master’s degrees are about 25 percent higher than those earning bachelor’s degrees. The Watson Graduate School of Management houses interdisciplinary programs such as the Master of Business Administration (MBA) and the Master in Business Analytics and Data Science, and supports management and advising in the Master in MIS program. In addition, it serves a coordinating role for other graduate discipline-specific programs in Spears Business.

Our graduate programs in business are consistently recognized for their excellence in the classroom, producing a job-placement rate of more than 98 percent for MBA graduates. The school’s online MBA program is regularly ranked as one of the nation’s best by U.S. News and World Report. Our information systems, analytics and data science programs are well known for their quality and excellent placement rates. The Watson Graduate School is renowned for its quality, value-driven programs as well as the service to students.
