MSBA Program Curriculum

The MSBA is 9-month, 30-credit hour program designed to be completed full-time over one academic year.


In order to complete the MSBA degree in the 9-month timeframe, students will need the following common body of knowledge in analytics: 

  • A college level course in introductory statistics
  • A college level course (full semester) in regression analysis
  • College level mathematics in pre-calculus, matrix algebra and calculus concepts.
  • A college level course that includes Structured Query Language and Programming (any language)

Students who do not have the necessary prerequisites can take the required courses online in the summer term prior to entering the MSBA program through the Undergraduate Certificate in Foundations of Business Analytics. Students may take as many of these courses as necessary to complete the common body of knowledge in analytics. 

Some or all of the prerequisite courses may be waived at time of admission for those who have completed equivalent courses in their undergraduate education or who can demonstrate proficiency. Applicants must have earned a minimum grade of C in each prerequisite course and a 3.0 grade point average or higher (on a 4.0 scale) for all of them.
