Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) May 02, 2015

Robert Morris University Illinois’ Morris Graduate school of Management (MGSM) offers degree programs in high demand areas. The MBA, the Master of Information Systems and the Master of Management offer various concentrations, but they are similar in that the curricula are continually changing to meet the needs of students and the evolving business environment.

The growing and changing field of data analytics within the business world has become an integral part of the MBA and MIS programs at Morris Graduate School of Management. The Business Analytics concentration includes courses in Data Modeling and Intelligent information, Decision Modeling and Communication, and Predictive Modeling –Econometric Analysis. Students accepted into the Data Analytics concentration for the Fall 2015 term receive a $ 17,000 grant toward tuition.

For the second consecutive year, the Morris Graduate School of Management joined with Northwestern University’s School of Professional Studies to sponsor a conference on Big Data. The conference sessions filled up early with over 300 in attendance. The universities were able to provide expert speakers from company leaders in Data Analytics, such as IBM, Salesforce, IBM Bluemix, Metascale and others.

Morris Graduate School of Management offers scholarship opportunities, flexible schedules and an accelerated pace for graduate students. Another advantage is that there is no tuition charge for a second graduate degree after earning the first graduate degree from MGSM.
