In a business world that prizes technology, data, and analytics, the traditional management toolkit is in danger of becoming outdated.
So we created a new kind of MBA.
The Analytics MBA at Stevens is a STEM program for recent college graduates who have studied a technical discipline, have limited professional experience, and want to quickly earn an advanced degree to compete for exciting jobs at the world’s most prestigious companies — where, increasingly, even early-career work requires a master’s.
Here, the faculty presents traditional themes like strategy, marketing, finance, and accounting through an analytical, problem-solving lens, with an emphasis on applying data-intensive methods to industry challenges. And the program’s structure encourages your personal and professional development through career support, mentorship, and business immersion.
Analytics MBA Program Highlights
The Analytics MBA emphasizes project-based learning and applied sciences to ensure your comfort in demonstrating leadership skills at work after graduation. Cross-disciplinary courses will nurture both your technical and business skills, giving you a holistic view of the enterprise.
Stevens’ proximity to New York creates endless opportunities for companies to meet our Analytics MBA students through guest lectures, seminars, class projects, and networking sessions. Employers such as Johnson & Johnson, Goldman Sachs, Verizon, and Boeing recognize Stevens students as being bright, tech-savvy, valuable professionals whose education prepares them to immediately take on high-level assignments.
In Good Company
Analytics MBA graduate students are taught by faculty who’ve started their own businesses, led enterprise-scale projects, and pioneered new ways of thinking about technology’s role in getting the job done. You’ll also be matched with an industry mentor who will provide coaching and guidance during your studies and beyond.
No graduate business education is complete without an opportunity to apply what you've learned on a project of consequence. At Stevens, that takes many forms — a consulting assignment with an industry partner, a research project that addresses an industry need, even the chance to nurture your own entrepreneurial venture — and is customized for you, your education, and your career aspirations.
The Analytics MBA at Stevens is structured around three areas of greatest need for the leaders of tomorrow's technology-driven organizations, who must be able to speak the language of business, understand how to apply new innovations within business units and across the enterprise, and interpret data to identify trends and make strategic recommendations. Classes give you a broad set of skills that are applicable in any industry.
The curriculum is further enhanced by intensive mentorship and leadership training, ensuring students graduate as well-rounded professionals who understand how the technical and specialized aspects of the company serve as drivers for future growth.
The three prerequisite courses to the Analytics MBA are designed to provide a basic foundation in management principles to students from non-business backgrounds. Students may be exempt from these courses with relevant work history or an undergraduate business degree. The three courses can be taken prior to the start of classes.
- FIN 523 Financial Management
- FIN 500 Financial and Managerial Accounting
- MGT 506 Economics for Managers
Language of business
One of the greatest points of frustration for technical employees is an inability to influence decision-making, as they are unable to translate their findings in ways that resonate with the C-suite. Courses in this block go beyond the basics to give you thorough command of how to understand scientific and technical advances from the viewpoint of a manager who must carefully deploy limited resources to ensure the pursuit of truly innovative developments.
- MGT 641 Marketing Management
- MGT 663 Discovering & Exploiting Entrepreneurial Opportunities
- FIN 638 Corporate Finance
- MGT 699 Strategic Management
Leadership and innovation
Courses in this block are designed to work in tandem with the curricular thread of personal development, nurturing aspiring leaders to think critically about problems and creatively about resources in order to attack corporate missions with fearlessness.
- MGT 612 Leader Development
- EMT 695 Leading Creative Collaboration
- EMT 696 Human-Centered Design Thinking
- MIS 714 Service Innovation
Most technical professionals are capable analysts who are most comfortable delving into technical, rather than financial or managerial, challenges. Courses in this block emphasize highly advanced analytics techniques that will teach you the ways successful managers look at and use data in understanding how markets work and making better recommendations to guide the enterprise.
- BIA 500 Business Analytics: Data, Models, and Decisions
- BIA 652 Multivariate Data Analytics

After completing the rest of the curriculum, students complete the MGT 809 Industry Capstone Program.
This three-credit course trains graduate students in the application of tools and methods used by management consultants to provide advisory services to clients. Students will work on an industry project with a team of their peers. They will scope and plan the underlying project, develop a statement of work, and design and deliver status update presentations. Students will learn how to facilitate meetings with different groups of stakeholders over the course of the project, manage client expectations, and apply their disciplinary and technical knowledge to the project.
The Analytics MBA at Stevens is a learning lab that reimagines the skills a graduate business degree needs to provide for aspiring leaders in an increasingly digital economy. Coursework is a critical piece of the MBA experience at Stevens, but just as important are the experiential components that will round out the portfolio of skills you’ll use to get the job you most want.
You'll be matched with a mentor who shares your work interests, giving you an invaluable resource as you begin your career — from interviewing tips to identifying companies where you can excel.
The Stevens focus on applied business analytics is something you can’t learn from a textbook. Here, you’ll use tools like Mezzanine, Bloomberg, WRDS, and OneTick to think critically about data, collaborate effectively, and create dynamic visualizations.
Agility, vision, iteration — even if you don't plan to start a business, these entrepreneurial traits are greatly valued by hiring managers. The program's entrepreneurship lab will challenge you to create a successful product and seek funding.
