Online Master's in Data Analytics and Data Science Programs in Michigan

There are currently three schools offering online master’s in analytics programs in the state of Michigan: Davenport University, the University of Michigan, and the University of Michigan-Dearborn. OnlineEducation.com evaluates the curricula of analytics programs and classifies each program according to specific criteria. Based on these criteria, Davenport University offers an online master’s in data analytics program, and the University of Michigan and University of Michigan-Dearborn offer online master’s in data science programs. All three of these programs are 100% online and do not require any on-campus visits.

Davenport University’s College of Arts and Sciences offers an online Master of Science (MS) in Data Analytics program with an interdisciplinary curriculum developed in conjunction with the school’s College of Business, College of Technology, and College of Health Professions. It uses a cohort model, which means that groups of students progress through the program together, taking two courses per semester sequentially for five semesters, or two-and-a-half years. It culminates in an Applied Data Analytics Capstone project during the final semester.

The online MS in Data Analytics program at Davenport University relies primarily on asynchronous instruction, which means that students have access videotaped lectures and other course materials on-demand, 24-7. However, some courses incorporate live sessions, which require online students to log on to the school’s distance learning platform at scheduled times to participate in real-time lectures and discussions. The program admits new applicants in the fall.

The School of Information at the University of Michigan offers an online Master of Applied Data Science (MADS) program with a data science curriculum that focuses on the use of data tools and technologies to solve real-world problems. The program has a flexible structure, allowing students to take one, two, or three course modules per four-week term. Full-time students can complete to program in 12 months, while part time students may take two to three years to graduate.

Online programs offered by the University of Michigan utilize a combination of synchronous and asynchronous instruction. Students in the online MADS program are expected to log on to the program’s distance learning platform once per week for live-streamed, synchronous classroom sessions. Other assignments and coursework is provided asynchronously, which means that students can access and complete various class activities on their own schedule provided they keep up with course syllabi. The University of Michigan has three admissions dates per year for its online MADS program, in the spring, summer, and fall.

The College of Engineering & Computer Science at the University of Michigan-Dearborn offers an online Master of Science in Computer and Information Science degree with a Data Management and Analytics concentration. This is a master’s in data science program with a curricular focus on the tools and technologies used to collect, process, and interpret large and complex datasets, and courses in artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and computational game theory. Student can choose from a thesis or non-thesis research project track, and can complete the program in 16-24 months of full-time enrollment. Part-time students have up to five years to finish the requirements.

The University of Michigan-Dearborn’s online master’s in data science program utilizes asynchronous instruction; however, some instructors may include live-streamed, synchronous lectures, and students may have to locate proctors to oversee certain exams. The program admits new applicants three times a year, in the fall, winter, and spring.

Students in Michigan may also want to explore out-of-state schools with online master’s in analytics programs. There are 69 schools offering a total of 85 online master’s in data analytics, data science, and business intelligence that accept applicants from Michigan. Most of these schools – 57 of the 69 – have programs that are 100% online. The other 12 schools require no more than two on-campus visits per year. Tuition costs are often the same for in-state and out-of-state online students. However, applicants should check with each school to obtain the most up-to-date tuition information as some schools do charge higher tuition rates for out-of-state students.
