From consumer retail to "smart grids," trading algorithms to the health care industry, businesses are generating an unprecedented amount of data. Effectively harnessing that data is critical to success. Students with the skills to ask good questions, identify patterns and trends, and leverage Big Data to drive business strategy are increasingly in short supply, and high demand.
The M.S. in Analytics at the University of San Francisco provides students with the skills necessary to develop techniques and processes for data-driven decision-making — the key to effective business strategies.
An innovative, multidisciplinary program offered jointly by the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Management, the Analytics Program delivers rigorous training in the mathematical and computational techniques of Big Data. It provides mastery of the analytics tied to strategic decisions — and the skills to effectively communicate these results in business settings.
Graduates of our program formulate relevant questions for the business context, implement the data analytics for decision-making, and synthesize the results for presentation.
