MS in Business Analytics Academic Experience

Set Your Own Pace to Become a Skilled Business Analyst

Tailor the MS in Business Analytics program to your individual situation and career goals with our flexible schedule and course load. Most students finish the 30-credit degree program in two or three years, but you have up to five years to complete the coursework if needed.

Gain Real-World Experience and Insight

Designed with significant input and feedback from experienced analytics leaders in the Twin Cities business community, our program helps you develop the key interdisciplinary skills and knowledge needed to become a valued analytics professional. Learn how to effectively identify, gather, and analyze data to solve problems and find opportunities in today's complex business environments. Apply your knowledge using real data sets from companies for project-based work in select classes.

One Program, Two Campuses

Because the MS in Business Analytics program is delivered by the Opus College of Business in partnership with the Graduate Programs in Software in the School of Engineering, you’ll get to experience both of St. Thomas' distinctive campuses during your studies. Attend graduate business courses on our Minneapolis campus in the heart of the downtown business district. Take courses from the school of engineering on our scenic 80-acre St. Paul campus. Convenient parking, food services, and study areas are available on either campus.

This unique collaboration emphasizes the application of analytics to drive business decisions while providing you with the critical technical skills to understand data management systems.

Develop Real-World Skills and Experience

Our instructors don’t just prepare you for the final exam—they equip you with the practical knowledge and skills you need to succeed outside the classroom. Our applied learning model uses group projects, case studies, simulations, guest speakers and more. You’ll even get the opportunity to work with real data from local companies in practical exercises. Leave the program feeling prepared for your next work assignment or career opportunity.
