Master of Science in Business Analytics

The master of science in business analytics (MSBA) degree program is designed for students with quantitative backgrounds looking to gain a competitive edge before entering the job market as well as those working in the field and looking to further develop their skills.

The curriculum is a blend of foundation courses in descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics; elective courses in analytics applied to a specific functional area or industry; workshops in communication, team, and project management; and hands-on exposure to industry-standard analytics tools/software. The program culminates in a project whereby students work in teams on an actual industry-related problem and present their findings to the client firm.

The MSBA degree program is offered in a two year format to accommodate working professionals. The program can be completed faster if students choose to take courses in the summer or take more than nine (9) credits during the fall and spring semesters.
