Gain the skills demanded by employers for data-centric decision making in the global economy. Eller's 10- or 16-month program teaches essential knowledge and skills in three critical areas:
• Data management
• Analytic methods
Taught by world-class faculty and built on the foundation of our top-five MIS program, the Master's in Business Analytics combines core content in analytics with electives in accounting, economics, finance, management information systems, and marketing. Dual degree options are available with other programs within the Eller College of Management.
Along with technical skills, students learn to address real world problems, ask the right questions, and propose solutions with insights gained from data. Faculty are top researchers in the field who teach methods so new they’re not in textbooks.
The program includes professional development. Students who opt for the 16-month plan of study can complete a summer internship.
