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 (STEM MSBA) 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.
