Academic programs in data science have become commonplace, but few of them present the latest tools and analytical techniques from the practical perspective demanded in the business world. The Stevens master's in Business Intelligence & Analytics will show you how to apply analytics while teaching you to think critically about conclusions, ensuring your recommendations to corporate stakeholders hit the mark.
For full-time students, applications to the Business Intelligence & Analytics program are accepted in three distinct cycles. To be considered for admission, all materials must be submitted by the deadline.
