OSU to offer enhanced MBA in Entrepreneurship
The Master’s in Entrepreneurship is transitioning to the MBA program, which offers a concentration in entrepreneurship. Students in the MBA program that opt for the entrepreneurship concentration will be getting an MBA in entrepreneurship. We’re making this change to provide our students a stronger entrepreneurship graduate school experience. The MBA in entrepreneurship will integrate all business areas, including marketing, finance, and accounting, with entrepreneurship-specific training to equip students to launch businesses, grow small or family firms, or lead innovative change in an established organization.
Merger of MS in MIS with Data Science option, MS in Business Analytics
The Spears School of Business developed and offered one of the first analytics programs in the nation, with two distinct tracks built on our strengths and diversity of talents. Over time, Spears Business has developed strong relationships with major analytics providers such as SAS, Teradata, IBM, and others.
As the needs of business have evolved, along with the integration of different commercial and open source software as a common toolset for analytics/data science professionals, OSU, in response, has now opted to create one common program (pending internal approvals). This program will include an integrated core set of data science experiences, while allowing the students to specialize in areas such as marketing analytics, health analytics, among others.
“This is an exciting development and represents OSU’s and the Spears School’s commitment to providing a world-class interdisciplinary, value-added analytics/data science program staffed by award winning instructors and internationally known experts in the field,” said Rick Wilson, head of the Department of Management Science and Information Systems.
“I am delighted to see this merger happen,” said Goutam Chakraborty, director of the Master’s in Business Analytics program. “This merger will allow us to provide a high-class, high-touch, comprehensive master’s program for graduate students in the Spears School of Business.”
