MINNEAPOLIS – Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is launching a new online master’s degree in Business Intelligence and Data Analytics. Offered fully online and starting this January, the program is designed to provide the business intelligence, big-data analytics, and presentation skills needed in various industries now, and into the future.
Created with full-time working adults in mind, this program may be completed in just one year. Graduates of the program will be professionals who are ready to face the challenges, demands, and opportunities of big data, including being able to understand the data from multiple perspectives, ask the right questions, and present the data visually in an understandable manner.
Program Director Michael Ratajczyk says having the ability to collect, analyze, visualize, and humanize big data so others can understand it is a rare combination of skillsets. “The need for professionals with these skillsets is overwhelming,” Ratajczyk added.
This Saint Mary’s program uniquely helps build real-world skills. One such example is by having student reports critiqued by a panel of experts from Fortune 500 companies. Another is by offering two program language courses (either R or Python, or both).
