The program is set to train┬ástudents in data analysis for making business decisions. Students will combine mathematical and systematic reasoning to apply data analysis to business operation.

The skills learned through the program are exceptionally useful in today’s business world, where many decisions are made every day that can profoundly impact the business and its environment in good or bad ways. Utilizing analytics is a useful way to predict the outcomes of different decisions, meaning the data can be used to support or discourage various courses of action. When the stakes are high, data analysts are the ones who have the knowledge to provide reliable recommendations.

Students taking the MS in Enterprise Analytics will gain a particular mastery in the analysis of non-traditional data sets.
