“The revised MBA curriculum has a greater focus on data analytics and innovation in business, and it is designed to be completed in 18 months for most students," says Robert S. Rubin, associate dean for graduate and professional education programs at DePaul's business school. “All courses in the program have been updated to ensure relevancy and promote experiential and technology-based learning"
A new MBA concentration, the MBA in Business Analytics, is also being offered this fall. It will equip students with advanced skills for analyzing business data to identify meaningful trends and recommend actions to capitalize on these trends. “These in-demand skills can be applied to positions across business functions, including those in operations, finance, management and marketing," Rubin says. An online MBA in Hospitality Leadership is also launching this fall to offer students the flexibility to deepen their knowledge and skills while continuing to work in the industry.
Kellstadt also is developing an MBA in Healthcare Analytics, which it plans to add to the curricula soon. This concentration will equip students with the ability to analyze and act on data in the fast-growing health care industry, Rubin says. “Students in this program will learn how to use data to determine how business, health and public policy interact and what implications this has for health care organizations."
The Executive MS in Human Resources targets professionals who have at least seven years of experience. Classes will be offered online accompanied by three in-person sessions that allow students to network with classmates, professors and industry leaders. Students can complete the program in 15 months.
At the undergraduate level, the college, which is highly ranked for its entrepreneurship studies, has added a new entrepreneurship major.
And for non-business majors, a minor in business is now being offered.
