Master of Science in Business Analytics

The M.S. in Business Analytics at Loyola Marymount University prepares students to understand, analyze and translate complex data and information into clear, actionable insights that move business forward. Our signature capstone project gives you hands-on experience completing a project for a real-world client, starting from the moment you receive the data to presenting your findings and recommendations to decision makers. The knowledge and skills gained from our program positions you to be an invaluable member of any team.

M.S. in Business Analytics classes will be delivered using an online synchronous modality through the end of the spring semester in May 2021. Online synchronous means all instruction will be delivered online; most of the course will be delivered live during the scheduled class time. Office hours and meetings by appointment will also be synchronous. Please contact us with any questions.
