The Master of Science in Business Analytics program develops a student’s technical acumen in deriving insights from large data sets as well as business fundamentals and soft skills like leadership, team work and presentations. Our students graduate with both the ability to communicate the data relevant to the problem at hand and how it can be leveraged to benefit the organization.
Students develop technical and soft skills through coursework throughout the degree. In their last semester, they work in teams using real data to solve a real problem for one of our industry partners in their capstone project. Students communicate with company executives throughout the project, presenting their findings at the end of the semester.
The Haslam MSBA is a 10-month program, starting in July during the last summer term and ending in May.
Students can pursue a *10 month MSBA or a dual degree, gaining an MSBA and MBA in two years.
*Subject to university approval by the University of Tennessee Board of Trustees.
The Haslam MSBA is STEM and OPT certified, which provides enhanced employment opportunities for international students. During the Optional Practical Training (OPT) period students with F-1 visa status who have either graduated or been pursing their degree for at least nine months can work in the U.S. for one year to gain practical training in their field of study. STEM Certification allows a 24-month extension of the post-degree OPT. Effectively, international graduates of Haslam's MSBA can work in the U.S. for up to three years after graduation in order to obtain extra experience before they attain a work visa through their company.
