The University of North Florida’s Coggin College of Business will offer a new master of science in business analytics (MSBA) program in the fall of 2021.

According to a release from UNF, the program will train future business leaders to use data to influence decision-making and drive business innovation.

The MSBA program is a 30-credit hour (10 course) STEM-designated program that allows for flexibility as students can complete the degree while attending full- or part-time.

“Business analytics knowledge and experience is one of the most sought-after skills for employers,” said Lakshmi Goel, UNF Coggin Graduate and Executive Programs associate dean, in the release.

“Every business can profit from an analytical understanding of how to maximize success and solve other business concerns. This essential business and data science training will help our students to thrive with high-demand skills that open up incredible career opportunities.”
