MS Data Analytics

Program Description:

The future of business depends on harnessing big data – in all its myriad unstructured formats and disparate sources – faster than the competition, and then using it to make better, more consistent and more fact-based decisions. But there’s a talent gap for data analysts with the specialized skills and broad-based knowledge to meet this growing demand. According to McKinsey Global Institute, the demand for deep analytical talent in the U.S. could be 50-60% greater than its projected supply by 2018.  
Southern New Hampshire University's MS in Data Analytics prepares students to be a strategic asset to any enterprise, from government, retail, IT and security firms to communications and media, finance, healthcare, manufacturing organizations and any other organization with big potential for big data. In this 36-credit online program, students will learn to leverage “big data” for competitiveness, risk-assessment, mission-critical decision-making and organizational effectiveness; gain command of advanced technologies for data mining, visualization, modeling and optimization while understanding the requirements and needs of the organizational environment through business research and in-depth analysis; and understand ethical uses of data and ensure appropriate security measures for data collection and storage by adopting advanced techniques for protecting the integrity and privacy of data, organizations and consumers.
