Online Master of Information Technology

Analytics and Business Intelligence

Value Benefit:

Jobs for business intelligence analysts—employees tasked with studying and analyzing large amounts of data generated by businesses—are opening up faster than they can be filled. Corporate executives are overwhelmed with volumes of data needing analysis and summary for better decision making. Forbes listed the business intelligence analyst among its top 10 best-paying science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) jobs last year. While some industries have a greater need for this role than others, the position is by no means industry-specific—it can be found in a wide variety of settings.
