Data Analytics Master’s Courses

Learn how to make data-driven business decisions

You will gain in-depth knowledge of information systems, as well as modern analytical skills, while fulfilling the 30-credit course requirement for the Analytics MS degree program.

Rigorous classroom instruction and required projects are structured to prepare you for the unique demands of this fast-paced sector. Courses are specifically broken out into the following segments, allowing you to build a foundation of knowledge as you go: Program Core, Analytics Intelligence, and Analytics Applications.

You will conclude the program with a required thesis or internship to demonstrate competency in research, analysis, and project work. You may elect to include research, project work, or both. An effective thesis will help you solidify your grasp of the program content and serve as an impressive addition to your career portfolio.
