M.S. in Business Analytics Curriculum

Professor Mona Jabbari teaching in a computer lab

The Providence College Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) degree teaches cutting-edge business analytic tools, as well as the reasoning and visualization skills needed to identify meaningful data, interpret data, and design informed, strategic action. Taught by expert faculty from both the School of Business and the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, the PC MSBA is a rigorous, quantitative graduate degree program that blends best practices from math, computer science, finance, and operations management. As a result, students learn more than the field’s current programs. They also learn the critical thinking skills required to adapt as the tools of the profession evolve.

The PC MSBA consists of 30 credit hours (10 classes). Students enroll into either the full-time program, which is completed in one year, or the part-time program, which is completed over two years. Both programs begin in the fall semester. All MSBA students are required to complete foundational courses after acceptance into the program, but before starting classes.

PCSB graduate courses are taught online, in hybrid formats, and in-person on the beautiful Providence College campus.

The Providence College School of Business is accredited by AACSB International, a distinction held by only 5 percent of business schools worldwide.
