Program Overview

This Master of Science in Business Analytics program will prepare you to effectively analyze business data and successfully present information to inform strategic decision-making. The curriculum requires you to evaluate the value of business analytics and the ethical use of data through a Christian lens and consider bias/fairness issues when analyzing data for real-world applications.

What to Expect

In this program, you will focus on applied business analytics, rather than a purely data analytics focus. The five concentrations also allow you to apply analytical concepts to your chosen area of expertise.

Concentrations include:

  • Finance & Accounting
  • Information Systems
  • Management
  • Human Resources
  • Marketing

The program will culminate in a final capstone course where you’ll work on a large analytics project in your area of expertise. Through an overview course, you’ll learn the basics of programming, coding and database applications. In your following courses, you’ll focus on how to apply these analytics skills to business decisions. Although you’ll learn about the ‘back end’ of data, this program is geared towards the ‘front end’ users of data. You’ll graduate from this program able to explain complex results and insights to move your organization forward.

This flexible program can be completed in 12 months through 8-week online courses. Although 100% online, our courses are a collaborative classroom environment - so you can take classes no matter where you’re located, and feel connected at the same time. Plus, no GRE or GMAT are required to apply. That means that you can gain the knowledge you need even while working full-time.
