Poets & Quants recently released their list of “The Most Outstanding 40-Under-40 B-School Profs”, and Schulich’s own Murat Kristal was included. Dr. Kristal is the Director of the Master of Business Analytics (MBAN) program, which he established four years ago – the first of its kind in Canada.

Business analytics combines various fields of management such as marketing, operations management, and strategy, with analytical tools from statistics, computer science, and operations research. Based on business analytics capabilities, organizations explore big data to gain insight and achieve superior business performance.

Dr. Kristal mentions the success of his MBAN students as his most memorable achievement as a professor thus far. “I was able to see every one of my students successfully find a job upon graduation. Since then I have been able to share in the same pride and excitement with two more graduating classes and their 100% job placement,” he said.

New students will be entering the MBAN program this September. If you are interested in learning more, visit our MBAN program page or check out Dr. Kristal’s video.
