Online Master of Science in Analytics

Now accepting applications for Fall 2022

Curriculum

There's no better place to get your education in a field that requires computing, business, statistics, and research, than a university which ranks in the top 10 in all four categories — a place like Georgia Tech. In our Online Master of Science in Analytics (OMS Analytics) program you'll have access to 23 different courses to complete your education.

Designed to be completed in one-to-two years, our OMS Analytics consists of 15 hours of core coursework on big data analytics in business, visual analytics, computing, statistics, and operations research essentials. An additional 15 hours of electives will provide you with the flexibility to focus on your specific areas of interest and are selected from one of three tracks.

Six-Hour Practicum
Just like students in our Master of Science Analytics program on-campus, you'll get the opportunity to develop real-world analytics experience potentially working with your own company through our six-credit-hour applied analytics practicum. You can propose a project using data from your own employer or you can secure the experience through one of our pre-selected projects.

Analytical Tools Track

The Analytical Tools track focuses on the quantitative methodology: how to select, build, solve and analyze models using methodology, regression, forecasting, data mining, machine learning, optimization, stochastics, and simulation.
