Analytics - MS
The full-time, 11-month Master of Science in Analytics program immerses students in the skills necessary to become effective analytics professionals, including: quantitative tools, applications and reasoning, critical thinking and presentation/communication skills. This program places heavy emphasis on student application of knowledge and skills through a two-semester practicum where students work in teams to complete an industry or government sponsored real-world analytic problem. In addition, the program emphasizes student professional development with respect to written and oral communication, leadership, and career development. Students specialize in a domain of interest by choosing a “cluster” made up of two courses in a specific area of study. Currently the program offers business and health clusters. For more information, check out the MS Analytics program flyer.
