At Simon Business School, an MBA
is about more than a credential.

Clarity at Simon means learning how to see through ambiguity
and the short-term, and
get to the heart of any problem.

We’ll show you how a deep understanding of economics, combined
with an intensive quantitative focus, gives you a cohesive, evidence-
based approach to decision-making. You’ll graduate with the confidence
to frame problems more effectively, uncover patterns that motivate
and drive markets, and use data to persuade and inspire.

“NOW I

TELL

STORIES
WITH
NUMBERS.
I wanted to go somewhere with a strong reputation for
quantitative work. Simon showed me how to use data to
formulate better insights and get buy-in for my ideas. Equally
important, I learned that no class or subject is out of my reach.”

focus because
good business
requires making quantitative
decisions:
what product to
launch, what pricing to use,
where to invest your firm’s
money. It’s also what defines
the businesses
at the forefront
of the economy.”
