Georgia State - Robinson to Launch an MS in Analytics

16-month program to begin this fall

This fall, Georgia State University's Robinson College of Business will begin offering a Master of Science in Business Analytics.

The new program will be 16 months long, and intends to help students leverage big data into real business insights. As such, curriculum ranges from broadly relevant business courses like "Consumer and Managerial Decision Making," to more focused classes such as "Econometrics." Students can also choose to take electives in various subject areas like Marketing or Risk Management.

Classes will begin in August with a two-week long "boot-camp," and students will graduate the following December.

The program's target audience includes students who are computationally-talented, and may hold a degree in a field like engineering, math, or economics.

According to the school, graduates will be prepared for a variety of roles, including positions like Quantitative Marketing Analyst or even Chief Analytics Officer.

With the MS in Analytics program, GSU - Robinson is the latest in a series of business that have begun offering graduate degrees in the field over the last year. Last October, George Washington University announced the launch of an MS in Business Analytics; earlier this year, Budapest's CEU Business School partnered with IBM to launch an MSc in Analytics.

Applications for GSU's new program are now open. For more information or to apply, pease see GSU - Robinson's MS in Analytics course webpage.
