Analytics Career Opportunities

If your career goals include “bridging” between technology, data and business leadership, mastering data and information, and applying the resulting insights for positive business benefit, then the Master of Science in Analytics is your perfect degree.

Upon completion of this program, you will be effective at interpreting trends in complex, often poor quality data and translating it for business leadership to facilitate action for positive results. In addition, you will emerge with the context necessary to manage the delivery of intricate, highly visible information systems required to support business needs.

We will prepare you to hit the ground running in any data-driven industry—from politics and sports, to finance and health care, and more.
