This Dual Degree combines two rigorous master’s programs to create the perfect combination of business acumen and data science expertise. The International MBA has a comprehensive curriculum that covers everything from accounting and managerial economics, to corporate finance and leadership skills. What’s more, the program is highly customizable, as it allows students to design their own education by choosing from a variety of labs and immersive experiences. Graduates of the IMBA possess a broad and well-informed perspective of international business, along with the practical management skills necessary to take the next step in their careers.

After completing both parts of the IMBA program, students embark on the Master in Business Analytics and Big Data. This requires them to switch gears and focus on the specific skill set that today’s companies demand from data science professionals. The program is built around four main areas: business transformation, data science, big data technologies and professional skills. Modules include instruction on data collection, artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing, robotics and much more. Students also learn how to use cutting-edge technologies such as Kafka, Hadoop, Spark and Flink to design, build and handle large collections of data.

Upon completion of this Dual Degree program, you’ll be an expert on the tools and applications of data science and analytics in the business world—as well as an effective leader who’s prepared to spearhead change and foster innovation at any company.
