Online Master's in Data Analytics Programs in Minnesota

Currently, there is one school in the state of Minnesota that offers an online master’s program in the field of analytics. Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota has an online Master of Science in Business Intelligence and Data Analytics (MS-BIDA) degree program with a curriculum that focuses primarily on data and business analytics proficiencies, including statistical modeling, data mining, decision-support systems, and data visualization technologies. OnlineEducation.com classifies this program as a master’s in data analytics program with a business analytics focus based on its curriculum. It is offered full-time, can be completed in twelve months, and does not require any campus visits.

The MS-BIDA program offered by Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota utilizes asynchronous instruction, which means that students are able to access lectures and course materials at their convenience through an interactive online learning management system (LMS). Students in the MS-BIDA program are issued an iPad in order to facilitate access to Engage, the LMS used by Saint Mary’s University. This allows students to video conference with instructors; post text, audio, and video on class discussion boards; and collaborate with classmates using various integrated applications, including Skype, Adobe Connect, and Facetime. Lectures, readings, and other course materials are also delivered via the Engage LMS.

The Saint Mary’s University MS-BIDA program has rolling admissions, which allows applications to be submitted at any time of the year. Once accepted into the program, students may begin working toward the 36 credits required for graduating at the start of the spring, summer, or fall semester. The curriculum includes twelve courses and a capstone project, and it is designed to be completed in one year of full-time enrollment.

In addition to the MS-BIDA program offered by Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, residents of the state can enroll in a wide range of other online master’s in analytics programs offered by out-of-state colleges and universities that admit students from Minnesota. This may be an important consideration for those looking to enroll in an online master’s in data science or an online master’s in business intelligence program. Currently, there are 67 out-of-state schools that offer 83 online master’s in data analytics, data science, and/or business intelligence programs. Of these 83 programs, 72 are 100% online and do not require any campus visits. The other 11 programs required limited campus visits (no more than two campus visits per year). Tuition for out-of-state online students in these programs is often the same as for in-state online students, but it depends on the program, so prospective applicants should inquire about tuition costs for out-of-state students for any program they may be considering before applying.
