From health and science to retail and finance, big data is driving and changing every aspect of our world today — especially in business. Advanced technology now allows companies to gather and store massive amounts of data more easily than ever before. But businesses are all facing the same dilemma: how to harness that data once they have it.
All over the globe, companies are searching for leaders who can use data to solve problems strategically and make effective business decisions. Our MS in Business Analytics prepares you to do exactly that. Offering equally solid foundations in both business processes and data analytics, our program develops managers and executives whose skills will be in high demand. Graduates are as comfortable communicating with managers as they are with quantitative analysts.
By the Numbers
“Our Master’s in Business Analytics offers students a very applied, hands-on approach to learning. They’ll take actual data, perform real analyses on it, and learn how to communicate their findings to management. When they graduate, our students are ready to hit the ground running wherever they choose to work.”Viswa ViswanathanPh.D., Associate Professor
Offered entirely online, our 30 credit program balances courses in business processes with courses in exploratory and predictive analytics. Ten three-credit courses cover everything you need to know — from using R/Python, JSON/XML and SQL, to examining business processes through their data models, to extracting meaning from big, unstructured data.
You’ll complete work and watch lectures independently at the times of day that work best for you. In addition, because the Stillman School values community, a weekly, synchronized recitation session will allow you to discuss problems and brainstorm solutions with your instructors and fellow students.
The program, which can be completed in 18-24 months, culminates with a semester-long capstone project that places you on a two-person team to tackle real problems using everything you’ve learned throughout the program.
