Weatherhead’s Master of Science in Management-Business Analytics (MSM-Business Analytics) students benefit from one-on-one interaction with academic pioneers and industry leaders. Our faculty excel in teaching as well as research, and the opportunity to share their insights and excitement in the most up-to-date and creative areas of management studies is one that Weatherhead students prize.
Weatherhead is nestled in the heart of Cleveland and its arts and cultural district—University Circle. University Circle boasts 15 museums and cultural institutions like the world-famous Cleveland Orchestra and Cleveland Museum of Art, four medical centers including the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals, 10 religious organizations, more than 30 restaurants, and a total of eight education centers.
Weatherhead is also within walking distance of the city’s “new downtown” called Uptown, which includes a specialty market, a local ice cream shop, pubs, the campus bookstore, the city’s new Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) and casual to fine dining restaurant options.
With so much going on in Cleveland and on campus, you’ll never lack for something to do. Take a moment to check out what draws our students to Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland, Ohio.
