Program overview

The Master of Science (MSc) in Business Analytics and Technology Management is a research-based graduate program designed for students who wish to become strategic, data-driven industry specialists and enhance their research expertise in the areas of data analytics and business technology management.

Combining specializations in business analytics and technology management, this unique program prepares students to identify problems and generate solutions for the academic and business worlds. While data analytics provides hands-on skills and in-demand training to students, business technology management introduces them to strategic and functional challenges that organizations encounter as they try to leverage analytics and other emerging digital technologies for innovation, transformation and value generation. Thus, this program offers an exceptional coverage of traditional and contemporary issues in the management of business technology and data analytics that would be beneficial for entry-level and advanced employees of modern organizations.
