Dean Bilson's Message

Business Analytics has upended the traditional wisdom on competition in the 21st century. The explosion of data we see today can be a powerful driver of business innovation, but most companies are still struggling to leverage it. Why? Today’s executives need new capabilities and disruptive thinking in order to succeed in the Age of Analytics.

We designed our MBA (Business Analytics) program precisely to train this next generation of management professionals who need to thrive in a world of analytics-driven competition.

For more than 50 years, Illinois Institute of Technology’s Stuart School of Business has been educating technology professionals in data-driven managerial decision-making. We embraced Analytics when Analytics was not yet cool. Today, we are proud to work with the Great Lakes Institute of Management, ranked #1 in Business Analytics in India, to offer an exciting MBA program for the next generation of executives.
