What Makes a UCLA Anderson MSBA?
About Our Program
The data revolution has given birth to entirely new fields in academics. In particular, new paradigms are being developed to manage, capture, describe, and analyze the flow of data, and to extract useful and targeted information that can be used to make informed business decisions.

One of the most important areas in which these paradigms are having an important impact is in business data analytics, or business analytics for short. Specifically, business analytics is the application of statistical, computational, quantitative, econometric, and management tools to the informational flows for the purpose of addressing business needs.


In the employment market, there is a demand for people who are facile in building models and manipulating data and who have a strong fundamental understanding of the economics of the firm and appreciation of the firm’s objectives. In addition, there is a need for people who can communicate effectively with others who are not well trained or well versed in analytical methods and models. Current demand for data scientists and analytics is being satisfied primarily with individuals with a computer science background who do not necessarily have the expertise to understand how firms develop products and compete.
