The Master of Business Administration/Master of Science in Business Intelligence and Analytics (MBA/MS (BIA)) dual degree program allows students to combine the general business focus provided by the M.B.A. degree with the technology management thrust of the M.S.-BIA degree. The streamlined program can be done in a 48 credit hour program (excluding Foundation courses) in considerably less time and cost than if the two degrees were earned separately (66 total hours). With both degrees, students will have an impressive collection of managerial and technology skills and competencies.
Demonstrated proficiency in computer programming. Requirement can be fulfilled by either having taken a programming class or on-the-job programming experience.
Students entering the dual MBA/MS-BIA program will also need to show evidence that they have completed at least one statistics course in their undergraduate degree. Students without such a class may either complete an acceptable undergraduate course or a non-credit statistics tutorial offered for a fee by the Heider College of Business.
|All MBA students will complete three courses that address business processes and skills fundamental to Creighton’s Jesuit and values-based mission.|
|Creighton's MBA program emphasizes how business leaders apply sound and coherent ethical principles to serve its stakeholders and society for the common good. To support this emphasis, all MBA students complete the following courses:|
|MBA 771||Leadership and Organizational Behavior||3|
|MBA 775||Business Policy And Managerial Action||3|
|MBA 776||Business, Ethics and Society||3|
|MBA Functional Core|
|Students who are new to the study of business because they hold neither an undergraduate degree in business nor have extensive business work experience may be required to take some or all of the functional core classes. Taking these classes and the core M.B.A. courses will lead to a general competency in most areas of business. Students who hold undergraduate business degrees or have extensive business experience may elect to take one or more of these courses with the approval of the Graduate Business Program's office or may elect to move directly to concentration courses.|
