Master of Science in Data Analytics (DATANLYTC MS)

30 Credits


Data Analytics is used to analyze vast databases that must be examined using complex algorithms and artificial intelligence to identify previously unidentified useful sets of relationships and trends. All aspects of the business and medical communities, as well as government agencies and non-profit organizations, rely on data analytics, yet are hampered by a growing shortage of data analysts. Davenport’s 30 credit hour Master of Science in Data Analytics responds to this need. The degree is delivered jointly by the College of Arts and Sciences in partnership with the Colleges of Technology, Business and Health Professions. The program is online and prepares individuals to conduct sophisticated analysis of existing data and create new data systems and methodologies. It is also designed to enable these individuals to make recommendations that increase effective use of data to help organizations meet specific goals and respond to new opportunities. The program uses industry standard software in practical applications directly related to current trends and issues that impact organizations across a broad spectrum. Course progression and content is carefully formulated to build competency in data analysis for students from a broad range of disciplines and experiences, including those who are new to the field.
