The George Washington University School of Business is excited to launch its newest graduate degree, a Master of Science in Business Analytics. Developed through a collaborative effort between the Department of Decision Sciences, I2SDS, and the School of Business, GW’s MSBA program offers a curriculum that prepares students for successful careers in helping organizations make better decisions through Analytics.
The 33-credit hour program is offered in an intensive 12-month format designed for the full-time student or a part-time, two-year format designed for the working professional. Designed for individuals with quantitative backgrounds, the two tracks are geared towards recent graduates with strong analytical backgrounds looking to gain a competitive edge before entering the job market, or professionals working in analytics and looking to further develop their analytic skills.
