SOUTH BEND - The University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business is accepting applications for its new Master of Science in Business Analytics. The one-year graduate degree will begin classes in fall 2019.

The new degree is intended for students will little or no work experience. “We’ve been running our MS in Business Analytics Chicago program for working professionals with great success, and over the years we’ve seen a number of applicants who would benefit greatly from an MSBA, but who did not fit the profile of that program,” said Rob Easley, John W. Berry Sr. Professor of Business and chair of the Information Technology, Analytics, and Operations Department. “They were either recent graduates that didn’t have the work experience, or international students interested in the STEM degree who wouldn’t be able to work while earning their degree."

The 31-credit hour program includes 27 hours of required coursework and four credit hours of electives. The work includes classes in data management, predictive learning, machine learning, sports analytics and marketing research. The program will also provide career planning and coaching. The school  will continue to offer its non-residential MSBA-Chicago program. More information on the new program can be found here
