Master of Science in Business Analytics

Business Analytics refers to the skills, technologies, applications and practices for continuous iterative exploration and investigation of past business performance to gain insight and drive business planning by using data and statistical methods. A variety of industries are in need of professionals who can take on positions of responsibility for collecting, analyzing and interpreting data in order to make sound strategic business decisions.

The MSBA program seeks to fill the talent gap in the area and to prepare graduates for this fast-growing field by developing students' critical skills in data- and model-driven management decision-making in the context of a firm's strategic vision. The program, which begins annually in September, consists of 10 three-credit courses (seven are required and three are electives). The program is designed to be completed either in one year's time (full-time) or over two years (part-time). Students may opt to use their elective courses to earn a specialization that is tailored to their career interests. Available specializations include: Artificial Intelligence, Healthcare, Marketing Analytics, and, for those who have an undergraduate degree in Accounting or the equivalent, Accounting.
