Transform Companies with Value-Based Analytics

A company’s ability to craft, access, and use data provides them remarkable insights and advantages. While organizations across industries have realized the competitive edge and efficiencies gained in using big data, they also have realized the number of leaders who can manage it correctly is in short supply. In its 2018 Workforce Report, LinkedIn declared a national shortage of 151,717 professionals with data science skills. Companies find themselves in desperate need of leaders who understand how to effectively use large data sets guided by ethical considerations to make key decisions and create strategies for a positive, economic, social, and environmental impact. 

The combination of business knowledge, applied data analytics skills, ethical training from excellent faculty, and the strong network presented in the Georgetown MSBA ensure you are ready to lead value-based, data-driven strategies in the sector of your choice.

Georgetown’s MSBA can propel you to the career you want in the role you desire. You will graduate from a world-class institution with the education and connections necessary to accelerate your career and to create, share, and sustain value for your organization and community.

“Employers seek individuals who can effectively handle data and grasp business concepts. The Georgetown MSBA program equips students with technical proficiency and business applications, along with essential interpersonal skills necessary for excelling in leadership positions that demand analytics knowledge.”

Babak Zafari, MSBA Academic Director

Thanks to the program and the connections within the cohort that the program fostered, I have been able to learn so many new skills along with some of the most talented people I have ever met.

“The MSBA program helped me gain a deeper understanding and toolkit in how to interpret and analyze data effectively. I found the classes set the foundation for using programming languages, predictive models, visualization tools, and more generally, data analytics at work. It gave me the platform to become involved in analytics projects, engage in conversations, apply modeling techniques to continue to evolve my analytics skill set beyond the classroom.
