Clemson MBA in Business Analytics




Big data is everywhere. Applied business analytics allows a manager to leverage this data using statistical analysis, including explanatory and predictive modeling and fact-based management, to drive decision making. Analytics may be used as input for making decisions across all realms of business including marketing, human resources, customer service or research and development.

Clemson University's MBA Program has worked in tandem with industry partners to create a new concentration in business analytics designed with their needs in mind.

Data-driven companies treat their data as a corporate asset and leverage it for competitive advantage. Successful business analytics is dependent on having both quality data to analyze and skilled practitioners who understand how to leverage the data to maximize effective decision making for their organization.

Business Analytics students will gain exposure to software and programs like SPSS, SAS, R, Python, Tableau and others to develop effective business strategies in real-world projects.

Program Structure

The program is modeled after the structure of our highly successful part-time MBAe program, which is a unique blended program consisting of online classes coupled with a few weekends per semester in person in our facility in Greenville. This blended delivery affords students the ultimate flexibility along with the advantage of in-person learning and networking opportunities with other students. The in-person classes are scheduled for two weekends (Friday-Sunday) per semester, and the remainder of coursework is completed online.
