Online Master's in Data Analytics and Data Science Programs in New Jersey

There are currently three schools offering online master’s in analytics programs in the state of New Jersey: New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT); Rutgers University; and Stevens Institute of Technology. Based on OnlineEducation.com’s classification system for analytics programs, NJIT and Rutgers University offer online master’s in data analytics programs, while the Stevens Institute of Technology offers online master’s in data analytics, data science, and business intelligence programs. The programs offered by these schools are 100% online and do not require any campus visits.

NJIT offers an online Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) program with a Database & Data Mining specialization. This is an online master’s in data analytics program that targets data mining and algorithmic data structuring, as well as database system design and cloud computing. Students enrolled part-time can expect to complete the degree requirements in five semesters, or a few as one-and-a-half years.

The MSCS program offered by NJIT utilizes an online learning platform that supports asynchronous instruction. Students have access to videotaped lectures and other course materials on-demand, 24-7. The program admits students who have an undergraduate degree in technology, or relevant professional experience in a tech job, three times a year, in the fall, spring, and summer.

The School of Communication and Information at Rutgers University offers an online Master of Information with a concentration in Data Science. (OnlineEducation.com classifies this program as an online master’s in data analytics based on the curriculum.) The program focuses on data mining tools, data interpretation techniques, and the ethics associated with big data operations. Full-time students can complete the requirements in 16 months. Those who opt for part-time enrollment typically take three years to graduate, depending on the number of courses taken per semester.

The online master’s in data analytics program at Rutgers University is run through the school’s Center for Online and Hybrid Learning and Instructional Technologies, which utilizes asynchronous instruction. Course size is limited to an average of 14 students in the Master of Information program. The school admits new applicants three times a year, in the fall, spring, and summer.

The School of Business at the Stevens Institute of Technology offers an online Master of Science in Business Intelligence and Analytics (MSBIA) program that includes a concentration in Data Science. The core program includes training in the tools and technologies associated with data analytics, as well as in the business intelligence applications of data processing technologies. The Data Science concentration includes additional coursework that must be coordinated with an advisor. The MSBIA program accommodates full- and part-time enrollment. Students who take three to four courses per semester can complete the requirements in 12-16 months. Students who take one or two course per semester can expect to graduate in 24-48 months.

The MSBIA program at Stevens Institute of Technology relies primarily on asynchronous instruction, which makes videotaped lectures and other course materials available on-demand to online students. However, some courses may include some synchronous components, including real-time webinars and class discussions. The program accepts new applicants for enrollment in the fall and in the spring.

In addition to the three in-state schools that offer programs, there are currently 69 out-of-state schools offering 84 online master’s in analytics programs that accept applicants from New Jersey. These include master’s in data analytics, master’s in data science, and master’s in business intelligence programs. Of the 69 schools that have programs, 57 offer degrees that are 100% online. The remaining 12 schools offer programs that require no more than two campus visits per year. Tuition for these programs is often the same for in-state and out-of-state online students. However, potential applicants should contact schools to get the most up-to-date information on tuition costs, as they do change over time and some universities do charge different tuition rates for out-of-state students.
