Finding a program that provided me the flexibility to balance my full-time job, home and kids felt impossible until I came across the MBA with Data Analytics specialization offered by Nottingham Trent University. NTU is both Equis and AACSB accredited and delivered a fantastic program online which was very flexible and convenient, and I decided to pursue that.
