Master of Science Business Analytics
Student in Pittsburgh, PA, USA
The Tepper School of Business, founded in 1949, pioneered the discipline of management science, challenging the academic orthodoxy of the time, which championed the case study method as the primary way to solve business problems. Other educational institutions eventually followed suit, and now most leading business schools teach some form of Carnegie Mellon’s model of decision-making powered by analytics. With the rise of big data in the 21st century, the Tepper School’s approach of developing analytical methods for solving business problems has become even more important, as it continues to make an impact in industry, government and education around the globe.
