MS-Business Analytics

The Master of Science-Business Analytics trains students to create business strategies using data and statistics.

Professionals in this rapidly expanding field use statistical methods and technologies to uncover patterns and trends in aggregate data, then apply that knowledge to real-world business problems. The Financial Engineer recently rated this program #28 in the U.S.

The degree is open to students with strong quantitative and analytical skills, regardless of their undergraduate major. The program includes a large number of courses involving statistical analysis.

The program is offered on campus, and a few of the courses are also occasionally available on-line. You may enroll on a full- or part-time basis during the fall and winter semesters, and some courses are often available during the summer. The program usually can be completed within 12 months of full-time study.

Admission is rolling, and you may begin the program in September or January. May admission is also usually possible for part-time students.

University of Michigan-Dearborn students who have been admitted to the MS-Business Analytics may take up to 6 graduate credits during the final semester of their undergraduate program.
