How an advanced degree in business analytics can boost your career

As companies increasingly rely on data to drive strategic growth, there is a greater need, more than ever, for employees and leaders to be skilled at business analytics.

For example, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, a management analyst career is one of the fastest-growing, highest-paying positions in business, with projected growth greater than 14% from 2020 to 2030.

Whether you are in an entry-level position, a seasoned analytics professional, or you are looking to make a career change, a graduate degree in business analytics will better equip you to be competitive in this digital age.

As a Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) student, you will develop analytical and leadership skills by learning how to use data to improve business decisions. You will also learn to deploy analytics to identify data insights that can be key to running a successful business.
