The online Master of Science in Business Intelligence and Data Analytics (MS BIDA) program teaches precisely to the three critical skills needed by data analysis professionals that are rare to find in a single individual: business intelligence, presentation, and data analytics.
The rapid increase and accessibility to big data give managers in all departments — from marketing and analytics to purchasing and HR, to business development and accounting —the power to identify, with pinpoint precision, the cause of organizational problems and the strategy behind successful solutions. Application-based coursework, including your choice of R and Python programming languages, is geared towards professional problem solvers. Those who need to answer questions like how their company can gain a competitive edge in business, where to save money in a supply chain, what’s the best pricing strategy, or how to optimize the workforce, benefit from this 1-year MS degree.
