University of Virginia's Darden School of Business Announces New Business Analytics Master

The Master of Science in Business Analytics will run for 12-months, with weekend classes and online study allowing students to keep with work commitments

The University of Virginia's Darden School of Business has announced a new business analytics master program, which will be run partially online to allow working professionals to keep up with work commitments while they study.

The Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) will be run in partnership with the university's McIntire School of Commerce, pending approval from the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia.

The program is one of a number of recently-announced master programs helping to prepare business grads for work in analytics, a field that has seen massive growth in recent years. The program will cover both technical and analytical skills, as well business and leadership components.

Aimed at working professionals, the MSBA will be delivered via a mix of weekend, in-person sessions and online instruction.

The first cohort will begin study in late summer 2018, with in-house classes taking place at a new facility in the Rosslyn district of Arlington, Virginia.
