Information is the lifeblood of every company, as is the ability to identify, gather, extract, and analyze this raw data. Business intelligence uses a variety of software applications to transform these facts and figures into useful information that can then be used as a catalyst for constructive decision making, cutting costs, improving operations, and identifying new business opportunities. With an M.B.A. with a concentration in Business Intelligence / Analytics, you will make an immediate and valuable contribution to any company, with exceptional proficiency in the science of business modeling, database systems, data warehousing, data mining, and benchmarking.

NSU's H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship in conjunction with KEMET Electronics Corporation, is pleased to host the scholarship competition for graduate students pursuing a Business Intelligence / Analytics MBA degree. This competition was made possible through a generous donation from KEMET Electronics Corporation and its CEO Per-Olof Lööf to advance outstanding Business Intelligence / Analytics students at Nova Southeastern University with two annual awards of up to $12,500. In addition to the monetary benefits of the scholarship, this is a valuable opportunity for students to work on real-world applications of business analytics and receive feedback from faculty and industry professionals.

Crina Manea

Crina Manea
In the summer of 2017, I enrolled as a new MBA student at Nova Southeastern University, initially with concentration in Human Resources, but then switched over to Business Intelligence/Business Analytics. I love being a student. I love learning new things. I love the challenges of testing my limits. And this is the best decision I could have made: to continue my education.

It is my goal, upon graduation from NSU, with an MBA program specialized in Business Intelligence/Business Analytics, to be actively part of this Economic sector. My ten year plan is to be able to become a Senior Program Manager in one of the companies that I've admired and followed for so long. Having an education and degree from a prestigious school like NSU will open the doors that have hitherto been shut for me.  I know how it is to start from nothing. I consider myself very successful in my life because I still possess not only a high degree of optimism, but also a zero degree of entitlement. In this country, nothing happens for you, unless you are willing to work very, very hard in order to make it happen.
