  • Business analytics is the application of statistical, computational, quantitative, econometric, and management tools to the informational flows for the purpose of addressing business needs
  • The UCLA Anderson MSBA curriculum is solidly based on the business school paradigm of merging theory and principle with up-to-the-minute business practice
  • The MSBA dynamic curriculum merges technical and theory-based pedagogy with practical immersion through a summer internship and a corporate-sponsored Capstone: Applied Analytics Project (AAP)
  • In the employment market, there is a demand for people who are facile in building models and manipulating data and who have a strong fundamental understanding of the economics of the firm and appreciation of the firm's objectives
  • Current demand for data scientists and analytics is being satisfied primarily with individuals with a computer science background who do not necessarily have the expertise to understand how firms develop products and compete
