Master’s degree in business analytics approved for William & Mary
The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia has approved a new master’s degree in business analytics at the College of William & Mary.
William & Mary’s Raymond A. Mason School of Business will begin offering the degree program in August 2016.
The program received the endorsement of William & Mary’s board of visitors in April.
The school said the program is designed to provide comprehensive coverage of analytic methodologies with a focus on four skill areas: business acumen, applied mathematics, computing technologies, and communicating with impact.
The curriculum will include coursework in data visualization, optimization, algorithms, database management, machine learning, and probability and statistics.
Jim Bradley is the lead faculty sponsor for the M.S. Business Analytics program.
