Every piece of data has a story. Figuring out how to best tell and utilize that story for the good of your business is the goal of the Master of Science in Business Analytics at Drexel University.


With an emphasis on “good data used well,” the program focuses on preparing you to work with a much wider variety of data than is typically analyzed allowing you to gather and analyze data to tell its story with insightful, actionable conclusions. Today, on average only 15 percent of data is actually being analyzed, making it imperative that companies find candidates who are capable of analyzing a much larger array of data, like text, video and audio.

Drexel’s online MS in Master of Science in Business Analytics at Drexel University can be completed in as little as 18-24 months.

What is Business Analytics

“Data” is a buzzword today, but for a business to be successful, that data needs to be effectively gathered and analyzed to help inform a company’s future. The role of a business analyst is to do exactly that: they review and analyze historical data in the hopes of gathering insight that can help shape a company’s future decisions. Business analytics professionals do this through skills like data management, data visualization, predictive modeling, data mining and forecasting simulation.
