MS-BIA/MBA Dual-degree Program

The Helzberg School of Management’s dual Master of Science in Business Intelligence and Analytics (MS-BIA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) program gives you both the management skills to lead your colleagues and the technical skills to analyze business data. Pairing these together allows you to complete two degrees simultaneously in a fraction of the time it would take to earn them separately.

Program Benefits

A principal advantage of this dual-degree program is that you have the option to complete one degree before the other. This gives you flexibility to tailor your professional development to suit your career timeline. Your Helzberg School of Management adviser will work closely with you to create the optimal career plan as you develop your skills and expertise.
