Graduates of the Leeds School MA program in Business Analytics possess more technical skill in managing big data and statistical modeling than the typical MBA, and they also understand more about business context than a traditional computer science major. In this way, the program cultivates a rare blend of skills that is in high demand by employers.
The program prepares budding professionals for life in the real world by maintaining key business partnerships that allow students the chance to gain internship experience as part of the curriculum for the master’s degree. The MS program is partnered with over 30 companies, representing a mix of both large, multinational companies and local Boulder businesses, across a myriad of industries. These partnerships not only provide students important handson experience on real projects, but they also deepen the relationship between businesses and the Leeds School, something that benefits students in the form of advice, input and mentoring, as well as many more aspects that are key to business program success.
