WHICH CAREER PATH WILL YOU TAKE?


Master of Science in Business Analytics or MBA Business Analytics concentration

The MS in Business Analytics prepares students to work in business organizations where they will apply appropriate analytical tools for use in developing business strategies, capturing opportunities and addressing challenges. Their learning will enable them to select, transform and interpret data for framing alternatives and assessing potential outcomes. 

MS in Business Analytics graduates often act as intermediaries between business managers and data scientists or technologists.

The MBA Business Analytics concentration gives graduates a solid grounding in business theory, operations and administration along with specialized knowledge of the processes involved in selecting and analyzing data and communicating results.
