About the program

The curriculum for Binghamton University's Master of Science in Data Analytics program combines core courses, practicums with real-world projects and electives from multiple fields of interest.

The 30-credit program, which takes about 10 months to complete, provides a robust exploration of the core fundamentals of analytics, while also allowing for the flexibility to explore applicable areas of interest.

The highly quantitative nature of the curriculum qualifies the program as a STEM degree.

The program leverages the cross-disciplinary insights of three of Binghamton University's schools:

Rooted on foundations in mathematical sciences, management, system and computer science, the curriculum builds an understanding of the methods and techniques of data analytics and emphasizes real-world applications.

Students will be assigned a faculty academic advisor, and will be required to meet with their advisor each semester to review progress in courses, field placement and career goals.
