At Desautels, we constantly have a finger on the pulse of the market through our close ties with industry leaders. Over the past decade, we have seen the demand for skills in business analytics skyrockets as organizations recognize the power of data to optimize their decision-making processes. While our existing MMA program includes a strong analytical component, we decided to take it to the next level with a specialized one-year program designed to prepare students for meaningful careers in an analytical role.

Our MMA program is geared toward students looking to upskill in the area of business analytics, ranging from recent graduates with proven quantitative skills to more experienced professionals who aim to pivot to a new field. “Our MMA program is geared toward students looking to upskill in the area of business analytics.” Our students represent a diversity of backgrounds, skill sets, and experience levels, but they share a passion for studying analytics from a business or management perspective. Given our class patron/matron, the dedicated members of our MMA Industry Advisory Board, and our vast network of professional guest lecturers/partners, students enjoy unique access to leaders from a wide variety of industries. For a new generation of leaders, impact starts here.
