The Business Analytics program of the University of Colorado at Boulder focuses on the exciting and fast-growing field of "big data.".


Merging developments in marketing and customer analytics with operations research, business analytics, aspects of computer science and statistical methods, the specialization offers a technical, quantitative and statistically intensive program designed to train specialists in turning "big data" into business decisions. Analytics may be used as input for human decisions or may drive fully automated decisions about why some data pattern is observed, what will happen next and how a firm can adapt to optimize that outcome. Students have an option to customize their curriculum by specializing in marketing, decision science or security analytics.

The 10-month Business Analytics program of the University of Colorado at Boulder includes extensive coursework and an application of materials, preparing students for a range of job opportunities. In addition to the academic coursework, four enrichment seminars in topics ranging from teamwork and leadership to ethics and corporate social responsibility support our commitment to developing the "whole student" by incorporating professional development into the academic experience.



The MS in Business Analytics offers three tracks to develop analytic skills in specific disciplines: marketing analytics, decision science and security analytics.
