Syracuse University to Offer Two New Business Analytics Degrees

Program to join a growing number of analytics MBAs capitalizing on the growth in this field.

Syracuse University's Martin J. Whitman School of Management announced this week that it will launch two new business analytics programs, making Syracuse the latest school to capitalize on the explosive growth in the business analytics and big data industries. 

Syracuse will offer one new program online, called [email protected], as well as an in-person M.S. in Business Analytics. 

Syracuse is the third school in February alone to announce the creation of a business analytics program. Wake Forest University School of Business and Virginia Tech's Pamplin College of Business both announced new M.S. programs in business analytics earlier this month. 

These programs are capitalizing on an explosion in the field of business analytics and big data, as the surge in new technology and social media over the past decade had led to an incredible amount of data ripe for interpretation by businesses. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 27 percent employment growth in this field in the next six years. 

Other schools that have rolled out similar programs over the past several years include Cal Poly, the University of Dallas, UC San Diego, Arizona State University, and Amsterdam Business School. 

Syracuse's [email protected] will be modeled after its established online MBA program, requiring students to meet weekly for online class sessions and to complete immersive assignments on their own time. The first deadline for the online program is April 4, 2016; the class will begin in July.

Students in both the online and in-person program will take classes in data analysis, business analytics, accounting analytics, financial service analytics, and principles of management science.
