Developing business analytics leaders, not just professionals

Obviously, the explosion of data can be traced to traditional internet sources, plus social media and new devices like smart phones, GPS, and tablets, but this expansion is equally apparent in everything from manufacturing to retail to healthcare.

In this environment, being able to communicate what the data means can't alone answer the immediate need in business analytics — there is strong, growing demand for leaders who can turn data into business solutions.

Leverage analytics and data for business-critical solutions

With an innovative nine-month curriculum that builds on your existing quantitative skills and unlocks your leadership potential, the W. P. Carey Master of Science in Business Analytics (MS-BA) degree can help you deliver an immediate impact and give you an edge in the highly competitive — yet wide open — market for data scientists. For students who prefer a virtual learning environment, the Online MS-BA offers the same curriculum in a 16-month format.

Develop necessary skills for the economy of the future

As noted in Forbes, “[T]he primary gap is new analytical skills for managers. Unlike their predecessors, analytic savvy managers must be highly capable of discovering patterns and finding relationships in complex data. Recent advances in analytic technology and data visualization has neutralized the advantage held by statisticians, data mining experts and actuarials [sic] with advanced degrees in predictive analytics and operations research.”

Through courses designed by the world-renowned faculty of the highly ranked departments of Information Systems and Supply Chain Management, you’ll be at the forefront of data-driven analysis, strategic decision-making and business process optimization.
