The Foisie Business School at WPI is pleased to announce the launch of its Master of Science in Business Analytics. The program will provide students with a solid foundation of business knowledge, combined with the ability to solve complex problems through proven methods in data and business analytics.
Students in the Business Analytics program will learn how to use technologies and business acumen to help organizations create and deliver greater value. This degree teaches students to navigate and build data-oriented solutions around business needs and strategies to stay competitive in a technology-driven marketplace.
The program consists of eleven 3-credit courses including a core module that introduces students to Business Analytics, a choice of business analytics specialties, and a capstone project where students work in cross-disciplinary teams toward innovative solutions to business problems that can be addressed with analytics.
Students applying to the program are expected to meet the Foisie Business School admission requirements. In addition, students are expected to have taken statistics and some accounting or finance as part of their undergraduate coursework. Background foundation courses are available for students without some knowledge of statistics or finance.
WPI’s MS in Business Analytics complements its highly successful MS in Data Science by providing an analytics program focused on business needs.
