Rutgers offering data-focused mini-MBA program for managers

By ,

Rutgers Business School’s latest mini-MBA program focuses on one of the new trends in business: data-driven management.

The school announced Tuesday that it will offer the accelerated certificate program from April 17-21 at the New Brunswick campus. The program costs $4,995, Rutgers said in a news release.

It is designed for current and aspiring managers, Rutgers added, even if they do not have experience working with data.

“Data is at the heart of the disruptions occurring across our economy, because data is permeating absolutely everything we do,” Margaret O’Donnell, program manager, said in a prepared statement. “The good thing is that each and every nugget of data can reveal insights to help improve business operations, reduce the costs of doing business, effectively identify profitable customers, gain market advantage, make better-informed decisions and, most importantly, formulate a strategy for business success.”

Rutgers said the five-day program will help managers:

  • Understand how the data explosion is changing the business landscape;
  • Increase return on investment for their organization by leveraging data already being collected;
  • Implement a data life cycle, from collection to operationalization;
  • Learn to manage and lead data-driven projects, in addition to managing and leading data-driven teams.

“Companies capable of leveraging data and making it a core pillar of their decision-making process are gaining a competitive advantage,” O’Donnell said. “But with so many steps between raw data and its effective usage, managers need exposure to current tools and an understanding of how to use them first, then of how to interpret and capitalize upon the results.”
