Worcester Polytechnic Institute Announces New Graduate Program in Business Analytics

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), an NEC member, will offer a new master’s degree in business analytics next year.

The program will prepare students for careers that require large amounts of data analysis to ensure they remain competitive in an increasingly data-driven and technology-based workforce. Students in the program will be able to choose one of four specialties within the field to allow students to best meet their personal goals and provide them with the skills they need to adapt to a changing environment of business operations.

“It will broaden the range of our students’ skills,” said Sharon Johnson, a business professor at WPI. “The program will expose students to different ways to use data, such as creating dashboards, computing key metrics for running a business, and developing models to optimize business and supply chain operations.”

The Council applauds WPI for continuing to adapt and to ensure its students are prepared for careers of the future. The Worcester Business Journal reports.
