MS-Business Analytics

Learn how to create powerful, data-driven business strategies.

Businesses, non-profits, and government agencies collect and analyze vast amounts of data to help them meet customers' needs, maximize profits, or serve the public. The Master of Science-Business Analytics at the University of Michigan-Dearborn teaches you how to use a variety of statistical methods and technologies to uncover patterns and trends in aggregate data, and then apply those insights to real-world problems. You'll practice applying those skills by concentrating in a specific area of business, and the optional capstone course offers the opportunity to work on a consulting project with an actual client.

You can complete the MS-Business Analytics in the evenings on campus or in a hybrid online format. You'll enjoy flexible schedules with evening and online course options. 

The program is a US-government "STEM" designated program. International students in this program are eligible to apply for extended time on their student visas to participate in Optional Practical Training (OPT).
