The College of Saint Rose now offers a graduate degree in Business Analytics that will equip students with one of the most difficult-to-find and sought-after skills in the job market today. The new degree, which launches this fall, has already made news in the Times Union and the Albany Business Review.

The master’s degree program will teach students to analyze data and then use it to shape decision-making in the business world. A 2017 Computer World survey ranked business analytics No. 2 for the most difficult skill for managers to find, and estimates salaries beginning at $87,000.

The program can be completed in as little as 12 months. Core components include theory, mathematics, and computer science. Those who come into the program without a computer science background will get the foundation they need. Business analytics students also choose from two concentrations: marketing or management. Required internships will put the program into practice while potentially opening doors to employment.
