Master of Science in Analytics (MSA)

next cohort begins January 2017

Analytics is a term that defies easy definition, and its use is accordingly varied. Here’s how we think about it: 

Analytics is the art, science, and culture of using data and advanced quantitative methods to improve an organization’s offerings, processes, and outcomes.

Organizations will always be challenged by the need to make decisions in the face of imperfect and incomplete knowledge. Recently, however, advances in data-capture and management, the digitization of internal and client-facing processes, and other developments have created substantial quantities of raw information that have the potential to narrow this knowledge gap. In order to realize this opportunity, the modern economy requires professionals trained in the appropriate tools, techniques, professional skills, and related proficiencies required to extract actionable knowledge from raw data and communicate data-driven insights in a manner that enhances organizational thinking, learning, and decision making.
