MS in Analytics

Big Data Requires Big Skills

The M.S. in Analytics at the University of San Francisco is an intensive one-year program that provides students with the skills necessary to develop techniques and processes for data-driven decision-making – the key to effective business strategies.

An innovative, interdisciplinary program offered jointly by the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Management, the Analytics Program delivers rigorous training in the mathematical and computational techniques of Big Data. It provides mastery of the analytics tied to strategic decisions – and the skills to effectively communicate these results in business settings.

Students in the program study topics such as data mining, machine learning, statistical models, predictive analytics, econometrics, optimization, risk analysis, data visualization, business communication and management science.

The Analytics Program is highly technical – students write R and Python programs in most of their courses and work with an industry partner in the Practicum (some are paid internships).
