Program Options

The program may be completed in several different ways.

  • Part-Time Online (Fall Intake only): This option does not qualify for a student visa.

Program Structure

The program consists of required courses in two core areas:

  1. The Management Core will help you develop an enterprise-wide perspective on data and the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to inspire, create, and foster an analytical culture within an organization.

  2. The Technical Core will introduce you to the methods and range of tools and systems that organizations use to conceptualize, collect, manage, and analyze data to produce information to make it actionable across their enterprise.

For your elective study, you will align the foundational skills you've developed in the two core areas with three courses you choose that are pertinent to your academic and professional goals. Elective courses in a wide range of subjects, including business, finance, marketing, information visualization, collaboration, communication, and negotiation, let you obtain in-depth knowledge in a particular industry or functional area within an organization.

Completing your capstone project, you will apply what you have learned in the two core components to a real-world analytics project sponsored by one of several leading organizations. Beginning in Summer 2019, the Capstone Project: Solving Real-World Problems with Analytics will be taught in fully online format only. All students will complete the course virtually. Students on an F-1/J-1 visa must enroll in on-campus coursework; therefore, students on an F-1/J-1 visa may not enroll in the capstone as their only course and remain in the United States. International students who wish to take fewer than 12 points (credits) in their final term should plan their courses with their advisor.
