Master the Data that Builds Business — with the Brand that Builds Your Career

The online Master in Business Analytics offered by Georgetown’s prestigious McDonough School of Business — ranked as one of the top 15 business schools in North America by the Financial Times — is a 16-month program that demonstrates how to drive value-based decisions by combining leading-edge analytics and critical-business skills.

In this premier program, you will discover a rigorous curriculum designed to immerse you in a rich, experiential learning environment. It includes weekly, synchronous sessions in which you join your cohort of classmates and Georgetown’s world-class faculty in a virtual classroom to address practical business challenges. Together you will discover how to structure problems, obtain and manage data, apply analytical tools and methods, and generate insights that enhance business value.

MSBA Courses

Throughout the online MSBA program, you will complete 18 courses that demonstrate how to analyze data and derive valuable insights across all business functions, and to lead change within organizations. You will explore case studies, use real-world databases, and learn how to use the latest analytics tools and technologies.

The program includes two required and intensive seven-day residencies where students earn credit, meet faculty and students in their cohort, and connect with program resources. It concludes with a capstone project that applies the concepts, methods, and tools learned in the program to a business analytics challenge with a local, national, or global sponsor.

Students also participate in hands-on training and demonstrations from both Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft to build the comprehensive data skills needed for success in the field. Through independent collaborations with both companies, Georgetown provides students with hands-on, dynamic learning opportunities using industry tools for cloud computing such as AWS and others, as well as top data visualization tools including Microsoft Power BI and Tableau.

By graduation, you will speak the language of data to effectively communicate with critical stakeholders and lead your organization. This provides your foundation to create, share, and sustain value for business and society.
