The M.S. in Business Analytics (MSBA) degree is a unique cross-disciplinary program designed to be completed in one calendar year (January–December). There are three main themes that drive the educational experience in our program: business strategy, data management and experiential learning. The curriculum is the result of an educational partnership between the College of Business, College of Natural Sciences and College of Engineering to ensure our students have a strong background in business, statistics and computer programming.
Our goal is to train students to have the talent required to be successful data advocates across multiple business functions.
Every spring and fall, we feature live big data projects sponsored by corporate partners. Each project is assigned a faculty coach and a team of students to work remotely on the topic presented over approximately 10 weeks.
We are thrilled to have KellyOCG on board as our spring 2019 corporate sponsor!
