Program Description

With the proliferation of data across all sectors of the global economy, it is not surprising that the number of graduate academic program offerings in analytics has increased substantially since its inauguration in 2017. Yet despite this, surprisingly few programs provide students with an end-to-end analytics skill set that combines deep understanding of the mechanics of working with data (i.e., its collection, modeling, and structuring), with the capacity to identify and communicate data-driven insights that ultimately influence decisions. According to Tom Davenport, Director of Research for the International Institute for Analytics (IIA)2, the ability to harness the predictive power of data has already begun to transform how key sectors, including manufacturing, finance, health care, and education, operate. The implications are significant: those who are well-prepared for this new frontier in analytics will be poised to shape the creation of new products and services that meet emerging business and societal needs.

The MPS in Analytics delivers end-to-end analytics education through a core curriculum with integrated experiential learning opportunities. The curriculum is defined by experienced scholar-practitioners and thought leaders from across the analytics industry, while experiential projects derive from a variety of industry settings and employer sponsors. In addition to these curriculum-based learning opportunities, the MPS in Analytics program provides students with unparalleled access to practitioners and companies through frequent networking opportunities, guest speakers, and hands-on project work. Not only will students graduate with a portfolio of work samples that demonstrate their range and depth of skill, they will be part of a larger network of analytics professionals that will serve them now and in the future.
