Business Analytics (M.S.)

The Gabelli School Master of Science in Business Analytics (M.S.B.A.) will help you to see the big picture that your future employer is going to ask you to draw. The curriculum teaches you to pull valuable conclusions from a wide range of information types: big data, business performance data, web and text content, and more.

The M.S.B.A. has two schedule choices; a one-year full-time program or a part-time program spread over a longer time frame, such as two years—ideal for professionals who don’t want to leave their jobs while they pursue the degree.
