Part-Time MSBA (FlexMSBA)

Analytics Drives Innovation

Because Business is a Science

Businesses of every size are collecting vast amounts of data. Creating value from this information — often from a variety of sources and managed by multiple stakeholders — is a key business challenge.

Our GenAI-assisted curriculum incorporates Large Language Models (LLMs) in every facet of the Business Analytics process, from problem definition, to data cleaning, coding, analysis, and presentation. We will prepare you for a future where AI is an integral part of a business data scientist’s responsibilities, and equip you with the skills and knowledge to thrive in this rapidly evolving field.

The FlexMSBA is a STEM-designated program and is a great fit for working professionals who:

  • Are in a management position and who would benefit from a deeper understanding of analytics and the value of machine learning
  • Have technical expertise but need to translate and expand their “analytics tool belt” to be able to create value in business contexts across marketing, finance and operations
