The Online Experience

With Rockhurst’s online experience, students can work through the degree program at their own pace over eight-week terms.

Students can also take some classes on campus for a hybrid experience. Taken when convenient with professors who are dedicated to their students’ success, there is little standing in the way between you and new opportunities.

You'll be able to speak more in-depth with your analytics team, asking the right questions and finding the right answers.

Career Opportunities

The MBA program is designed to help you move into management positions, better understand roles in a company, and improve your leadership skills. You will learn essential techniques to make you more qualified for influential roles, especially those requiring a background in data analytics.
