Fordham also unveiled two new master’s degree programs: a Master of Science in business analytics and Master of Science in marketing intelligence, both pending approval by the New York State Education Department.
“IBM and Fordham University have a long-standing relationship, founded on our deep commitment to preparing students with the skills needed to become successful business leaders,” said Mark Hanny, vice president of IBM’s academic initiative. “There’s no disputing that analytics skills are in high demand, and with this new program, we are taking the next step in ensuring students are prepared to use technology to solve complex business challenges.”
Fordham is collaborating with IBM on the business analytics degree program. IBM will also contribute to new degree program curricula.
