The faculty of the Tuck School of Business voted on Friday, January 17, 2020 to provide MBA students with an option to earn formal recognition for significant learning in management science and quantitative analysis.
The growing interest in analytics tools and careers among current and prospective students was noted by the Tuck faculty during the recent core curriculum review process, resulting in an expanded focus on analytical skills in the refined core curriculum.
This new option will designate a portfolio of courses across the Tuck curriculum from which interested students can select to deepen their knowledge in analytics.
Once a student has completed the required number of courses, Tuck believes the student’s degree would best fit within the “Management Sciences and Quantitative Methods” category on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s STEM Designated Degree Program list.
Additional details about the menu of courses and the number required to pursue this student option will be finalized and announced in the very near future.
