Every Organization Uses Analytics

Change your career trajectory by developing data manipulation, visualization, and analytical decision-making skills with the MS in Business Analytics (MSBA). The 10-course, 31-credit MSBA program can be completed at your own pace through our flexible online learning platform.

Flexible and Convenient

The Isenberg’s Online MSBA program offers the flexibility you need to fit your life, while learning from industry-leading expert faculty and receiving the same core curriculum as your on-campus counterparts. As an Online MSBA student, you can work at your own pace, taking as few as three credits (one course) or up to four years to complete your degree. And, if you start your degree online in the summer, you have the option of joining an on-campus cohort in Amherst or Newton in the fall.
