MBA with these tracks/concentrations [#permalink] New post 04 Feb 2010, 20:57
Hello all,

I have recently started my b-school research. I would either like to start a company or work as a consultant, both in business analytics. I have sufficient technical education and experience in data mining and analytics. I was wondering if there is a program that will prepare me for achieving either of the objectives. [Please know that I'll be doing in my research too, but it would be nice if someone can offer a general direction] I necessarily don't need to take any more courses in analytics, but I definitely need to build entrepreneurial skills and good network in this field. Please do not scoff at my questions, as I have barely begun to understand the whole application process. Would location/ranking matter in such a case? If I am unable to start a start-up right off the bat, I am interested in working as a consultant for analytics solutions provider companies.

Does anyone here have similar goals or have already done so? Is someone here doing analytics post-MBA?

Thanks for your help.

i think the stronger the brand name of the school, the easier it will be for you to land offers post mba.

i'm pretty sure there will be quite a few opportunities out there for the career you want, and you'll be able to get a solid offer straight out of school as long as you put the work in and really prepare yourself for it. and brand definitely matters imo.

Since going for an MBA is a serious endeavor in terms of both financial and time investments, we advise you to go for the best ranking schools you can possibly get into while keeping some safety schools on your list. To have your own business in business analytics, it involves not only the technical skills; more importantly, marketing and management skills. We advise you look into the consulting firms which are known for its business analytics and the business schools they recruit at. We believe that business analytics is an area most of consulting firms cover, since it is the basis of many strategy consulting practices.

We offer various packages in MBA Admissions Consulting including a free evaluation to get started. Feel free to contact us for if you'd like help via PM or by emailing us at the number in our sig. Good luck!

I do business analytics as well and am in the same boat as you. I was really turned on by Chicago Booth and MIT Sloan for a few reasons. #1, I thought they provided really good breadth AND depth for quantitative skills and functional business skills. #2, I think that more high-end quantitatively-inclined people (huge data sets, statistics, etc) are attracted to these schools so you may fit in better.

Oh, and my little secret - I may be interested in pursuing a PhD once I'm finished with the MBA (or a few years later). That makes the econometrics concentration at Booth so appealing.
