The addition of the MBA with Insurance Specialization positions graduates to take advantage of the 100,000 upper management and technical positions projected to become available in the insurance industry as baby boomers retire and the industry continues its stable growth pattern.


M.S. in Business Analytics

Organizations rely on insights that are backed by data to operate efficiently and effectively. Business analytics professionals analyze small and big data in order to generate the insights needed to help stakeholders make better decisions and enable organizations function more strategically. Franklin’s M.S. in Business Analytics equips students with the tools, techniques and strategies that will equip them to drive the transformation of mind-boggling amounts of data information into a meaningful basis for decision making and strategic direction. Students gain the statistical and analytical skills to excel in a variety of industries including – finance, manufacturing, marketing, insurance and information technology.


M.S. in Data Analytics

With on-going expansion of modern technology including smart devices, social networking, online shopping and more, the amount of data captured is growing exponentially. While the collection and storage of these large amounts of data has become easier and inexpensive, the demand for individuals with the skills capable of managing, analyzing and mining this information is surging. The M.S. in Data Analytics equips students with the statistical skills necessary to conduct descriptive and predictive analytics; the programming skills to create and apply computer algorithms; the tools and platforms to visualize and mine big data, and the communication skills necessary to effectively convey findings and provide strategies and best practices within an organization.

MBA with Insurance Specialization

The impending retirement of top-level, baby boomer, insurance industry executives makes now the perfect time for motivated professionals to actively pursue advancement opportunities. Franklin’s MBA with Insurance Specialization provides a fast, affordable path to promotion, and adds a credential distinction for those who have or who are pursuing a Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation. Students build business acumen with an employer-respected MBA program that can be customized to align with career aspirations within the insurance industry.


Through the addition of the three new master’s offerings, Franklin University remains dedicated to its philosophy of adapting to the needs of students, and responding to changes in society, professions, and the business community.
