Business Analytics

About Program Degrees Offered and Application Requirements

The first of its kind in Canada, Schulich’s Master of Business Analytics program gives students the tools and techniques to become experts at data-driven decision-making.

With the increasing importance of business analytics, the talent to analyze and demystify Big Data is in growing demand.

The capstone of the program is a Major Research Project in which students focus on hands-on problem driven research, normally while working on a 12-week project with a company.

The Schulich Master of Business Analytics (MBAN) is a one-year full-time program designed to give you the tools and techniques to become an expert in this evolving, high-demand field. All Schulich MBAN students are awarded the much-coveted SAS™ (Statistical Analysis Software) certification upon completion of the program.
