The MS Business Analytics program at HSM is focused on applying the tools of modern data science, optimization, and machine learning to solve real-world business problems.

Given the massive data being generated (Big Data) in the present environment defined by the rapid diffusion of information technology, there is a need to develop capabilities in data analysis and organization of information necessary for decision-making. However, with continued innovation revolving around digital technologies, the internet, and mobile computing, the amount of data in terms of transactions, business interactions, serial exchanges, and success continues to grow exponentially. At this rate, there will soon be a shortage of talented analysts who can help organizations work with such big data. The Business Analytics concentration within the MS degree program provides a strong foundation in 'Data Analytics' by bringing together a diverse body of knowledge from applied statistics, applied mathematics, computer science, optimization, consumer behavior, risk management, operations research, and decision theory. The participants will use this training to solve real problems in finance, marketing, accounting, and other disciplines.
