Businesses have a critical need to extract considerable information from the massive increase in available data. These insights are intended to increase business profitability, enhance productivity, improve operations, and enrich decisions-making.
To accommodate this potential, businesses need employees trained in business practices, statistics, and programming. The University of New Haven's master’s in Business Analytics has been designed to provide graduates with a thorough understanding on how to use and deploy predictive analytics and visualization for maximum results.
