Watch: Recent Graduate Perspectives – MS in Business Analytics

Charlie Braunlich ’19 and Tuba Dar ’19 knew that the ability to parse and analyze data to make decisions would open up a world of opportunities for them—and they knew Simon’s MS in Business Analytics was the program to build those skills. They reflect on their experience and touch on the programming languages they learned, the importance of co-curricular activities, and how students from any background can succeed at Simon. 

With our expertise in analytics, coupled with our economics-based curriculum, our MS in Business Analytics degree will equip you with the theories and practical frameworks you need to be a sought-after analyst.
