Using Data to Create Value
In just 12 months, the MIT Sloan Master of Business Analytics program prepares students for careers that apply and manage modern data science to solve critical business challenges.
The program is tailored for current students or recent college graduates who plan to pursue a career in the data science industry, as well as those seeking career advancement or change, especially engineers, mathematicians, physicists, computer programmers, and other high-tech professionals.
The program answers the industry’s demand for a skilled pool of graduates who can apply data science to solve business challenges. MIT offers an analytics degree at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels.
The Master of Business Analytics Program qualifies as a STEM – designated program, allowing international students to extend their training in the U.S. by 24 months after graduating.
Analytics Capstone Project
A highlight of the Master of Business Analytics curriculum is the Analytics Capstone Project, which gives students an opportunity to work on real-life data science problems with industry practitioners. Over a period of seven months, students work in teams of two with sponsor organizations around the United States and abroad. In January, the student teams are matched with host organizations and assigned dedicated faculty advisors. From February to May, students work on the projects on campus at MIT, meeting regularly with their faculty advisor and host organization. In the summer, students travel to the host organization for a full-time summer internship. Finally in September, upon completion of the summer internship and submission of a final report and presentation, students earn their formal degree.
