UIC Liautaud’s Master of Science in Business Analytics is designed to prepare students to meet this growing demand for data skills. At UIC Liautaud, you will learn how data analysts describe, predict and inform business decisions in the specific areas of marketing, human resources, finance and operations, and you will develop basic data literacy and an analytic mindset that will help you make strategic decisions based on data.
In the final capstone project, you will apply your skills to interpret a real-world data set and make appropriate business strategy recommendations.
