M.S. in Business Intelligence and Data Analytics — 100% Online

Leverage artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analysis to fuel decision-making.

You can ignite your career in just one year with Saint Mary’s University’s online Master of Science in Business Intelligence and Data Analytics (MS BIDA) degree. This experiential program delivers data governance and visualization skills that hiring managers notice immediately.

In it, you’ll use a combination of real-time big-data sets from Fortune 500 companies and tools such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and agile frameworks to navigate this complex environment. With them, you’ll discover the causal relationships between conditions that affect the bottom line, present challenges at hand, and propose successful solutions to all stakeholders using quantifiable data.


No less than three times throughout the year-long program, your work will be critiqued by a panel of experts — again from Fortune 500 companies — providing insight and exposure to your rapidly growing skill set.

“There’s an urgent need for individuals who can adapt to the realities of big-data. Companies want to know how you’re able to humanize it to various stakeholders, and what you can do when faced with imperfect data. They want solutions, not excuses.”

—Michael Ratajczyk, Program Director, MS BIDA.
