Become a Master of Business Analytics (MSBA)

If you’re driven to apply your data modeling, mathematics and coding skills to solve major business problems, you may be the right fit for our Master of Science in Business Analytics Program (MSBA) — and for the many top companies that hire our graduates. These organizations seek to draw insights from the massive amounts of data they have accumulated, but they need the right people to translate the data into actionable strategies.

Our STEM-certified MSBA program is a 15-month on-campus experience that will give you the tools to harness the power of data to gain insights — and tell data stories — that drive strategic business decisions. You will become an invaluable asset to an organization early in your career.

About Our Program

Our MSBA students bridge the gap between the tech and business suites by analyzing data to arrive at solutions that can change an organization’s strategy, and can even impact lives. To prepare students for these roles, we select faculty who are known authorities in research, modeling, communication and business practices. Beyond the classroom, we have created unique learning opportunities — including internships with high-profile companies, data storytelling and improv workshops, and seminars with analytics leaders to ensure that our graduates are ready to make an instant impact on the organizations they join.

Because our MSBA graduates will have such a critical influence on business strategy and decisions, we also make sure they are trained to achieve ethical outcomes — this is the UCLA Anderson way.
