MS in Business Intelligence and Analytics – Data Analytics

Format: Online

Program Description:

The online Master of Science in Business Intelligence & Analytics (MSBIA) at Saint Joseph’s University – one of the first Business Intelligence & Analytics master’s degree offered entirely online – is designed and delivered by those at the center of the Business Intelligence and Analytics industry. You can choose from one of four career-enriching tracks: General Track, Data Analytics, Cyber Analytics, or Data Science.

The terms “business intelligence” and “business analytics” are sometimes used interchangeably despite having different definitions. Thomas Davenport1, professor of information technology and management at Babson College, argues that business intelligence should be divided into querying, reporting, online analytical processing (OLAP), an “alerts” tool, and business analytics. In other words, business analytics is a subset of business intelligence that focuses on statistics, prediction, and optimization, rather than the reporting functionality.
