Whether you are majoring in business, statistics, economics, computer science, engineering, or a liberal studies nonbusiness field, a degree in business analytics offers a way to link your undergraduate studies to business. By earning a Master of Science-Business: Operations and Technology Management: Business Analytics, you’ll learn to harness the power of analytical tools to provide insight and actionable recommendations in any business setting.
You’ll also apply what you learn to real-world experiences and have opportunities to explore various career paths through site visits, guest speakers, case competitions, and other professional development activities.
The curriculum is divided into a foundations semester and an applications semester:
- The foundations semester starts with a statistics and programming boot camp, where students are introduced to R and Python. The core method classes include data management/SQL, data visualization, machine learning, experimental design, and prescriptive analytical modeling.
- The applications semester includes one analytics course elective (three credits) and six credits of experiential learning, including a consulting practicum for live corporate clients working on real business analysis challenges.
