ExecOnline Partners With Chicago Booth to Launch Online Program Focused on Business Analytics

ExecOnline, the leading provider of online leadership development programs, announced the addition of The University of Chicago Booth School of Business (Chicago Booth) to its family of top business school partnerships.

ExecOnline will focus on delivering Chicago Booth’s expertise in the field of Business Analytics to solve this critical leadership development need for organizations around the globe. According to Gartner, “By 2020, 80 percent of organizations will initiate deliberate competency development in the field of data literacy, acknowledging their extreme deficiency.”

Chicago Booth, currently ranked as the #1 business school by US News and World Report, is the second-oldest business school and first to offer Executive MBA programs in the U.S. Booth boasts the largest number of Nobel Laureates of any business school and the ongoing evolution of its unique approach to problem-solving has allowed it to remain on the cutting-edge of leadership education.

Stephen Bailey, Founder and CEO of ExecOnline, emphasized that “Booth’s dedication to ‘turning the smartest ideas into meaningful action’ aligns perfectly with the goals of our organization, and we are delighted that Booth has chosen to partner with ExecOnline as the business school’s inaugural online partner.”

“Data and analytics are a part of Chicago Booth’s DNA. Now, executives around the globe can experience the Booth approach to Business Analytics through a new online format that is rigorous, engaging and flexible for busy business professionals,” says Meena Wehrs, Associate Dean, Chicago Booth Executive Education.

The partnership’s flagship program will launch in fall 2019 and present The Chicago Approach to Business Analytics, which emphasizes the need to begin with business objectives first – and then to leverage data to inform business decisions, insights and actions.

Sanjog Misra will serve as the faculty director among an elite group of Booth professors. Misra, the Charles H. Kellstadt Professor of Marketing and Neubauer Family Faculty Fellow, is a leader in the field and currently serves as co-editor of Quantitative Marketing and Economics. He has worked with companies such as Verizon, Eli Lilly, Xerox and MGM, aiding them in the development of data-driven management systems that drive better decision making and results.
