The Program Evaluation and Data Analytics MSc is a professional degree from Arizona State University that emphasizes skills needed to leverage data to improve organizational performance in the public, nonprofit and private sectors.


The Program Evaluation and Data Analytics MSc from Arizona State University combines courses in program evaluation that provide tools to assess policy or program impact with data science classes that empower students to utilize a diverse array of data sources in new and exciting ways.

Students receive training in data programming, visualization, dashboard design, open data, project management and impact analysis. Through this, students build the technical skills necessary to implement evidence-based approaches to policy and management.
