Business Engineering and Management Science

Bachelor’s Degree

The Bachelor of Science in Business Engineering and Management Science program prepares students with an interest and aptitude in STEM to be leaders in an increasingly data- and technology-driven business world. Unlike traditional programs that focus on case studies and best practices, this quantitative business program relies on intentional, deep, scientific analyses. After a solid grounding in math and engineering fundamentals, students are trained in the latest quantitative business tools, with a focus on two core areas: data analytics and operations research, and business principles. The program offers five specialization tracks, from which students can choose two: business analytics, financial engineering, artificial intelligence and machine learning, advanced manufacturing and technology management.
