Overview

As demand for data analysts in the current job market continues to rise, the Master of Science in Data Analytics at Kansas State University was developed by a partnership between the Kansas State University College of Business and six departments across the K-State campus, including computer science, economics, geography, mathematics, statistics and industrial manufacturing systems engineering.

The degree offers two tracks, with a data science track and an applied analytics track, each focusing on different aspects of data analytics. The data science track focuses on techniques, methods and algorithms, while the applied analytics track is more practical in applying methods toward business problems and communication with stakeholders.
