Syracuse University - Online Master of Science in Business Analytics Program

The Master of Science in Business Analytics (BusinessAnalytics@Syracuse) program offered by Syracuse University is an online degree that focuses on complex data interpretation techniques and the use of this expertise to inform decision making in a competitive business environment. Housed in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management, BusinessAnalytics@Syracuse takes a multidisciplinary approach to analytics, emphasizing its applications in the fields of accounting, finance, marketing, and supply-chain management. The program requires 36 credit hours of coursework, and can be completed in 18 months, even by students who are employed full-time. Typically, students enroll in two three-credit courses per 12-week term.

BusinessAnalytics@Syracuse utilizes a learning platform that supports live online lectures and class discussions, and the program caps enrollment to ensure a high faculty-to-student ratio. Students are required to be present online for scheduled weekly classes. Assignments and additional media-rich course materials are available 24/7, and students have individual online access to faculty members for additional support. BusinessAnalytics@Syracuse does not require any on-campus visits and can be completed 100% online. The program encourages its students to interact and collaborate on classwork and projects designed to highlight the practical use of analytics in business decision-making processes.

The BusinessAnalytics@Syracuse curriculum is built around two core courses: Data Analytics and Decision Making, and Business Analytics. Students are then required to take four core application courses, which include Accounting Analytics, Financial Analytics, Marketing Analytics, and Principles of Management Science. Together, these courses account for half, or 18, of the 36 credits required for graduation. The remaining 18 credits are accrued through elective coursework in subjects like Financial Accounting, Marketing Research, Strategic Brand Management, Derivatives, Taxes and Business Strategy, and Managerial Finance. This allows students to tailor their degree by drawing on the considerable resources of the Whitman School Of Management’s larger MBA program.

The Martin J. Whitman School of Management is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).
