Our accelerated dual-degree program leading to a BS and an MS in Business Analytics prepares you to meet the challenges of today’s global business world. You can select an undergraduate program that complements your career ambitions and prepares you for the in-depth, graduate-level work you’ll do in the fourth year, when you’ll explore the practical qualitative and quantitative skills that serve as the foundation to sound decision making.
Upon completion of your master’s degree, you also will be awarded a Certificate in Business Analytics using SAS. This credential will strengthen your resume as a business intelligence professional, and will qualify you to pursue any of the official SAS Certification exams to further differentiate yourself.
Even though the program is accelerated, you’ll still receive the same quality education you would get in a traditional track, plus we offer the flexibility to shape your experience in a way that reflects your goals and interests. Coursework is designed to deliver a number of in-demand skills that you can immediately apply to your current career, including data management, data warehousing, text and data mining, visualization and predictive modeling.
