New Online Bachelor’s Degree Launched to Meet Demand for Data Analysis Professionals
In this highly digitized world, organizations rely on data insights to react to emerging trends and inform business strategies. To do this successfully, they need employees with data analysis expertise who can collect information and translate it into actionable plans. It’s an in-demand skill set that comes with a competitive salary.
The University has responded to the need for candidates with data analysis proficiency by launching a new online bachelor’s degree program in applied data and predictive analytics offered through a partnership between the College of Professional Studies and the School of Information Studies (iSchool).
Tying together the fields of computer science, management and business intelligence, the 120-credit part-time undergraduate degree program will prepare budding analysts to derive insights from complex data, create powerful predictions and drive critical business decisions with measurable performance.
The online program’s dynamic learning environment is built with a blend of asynchronous and synchronous learning. Much of the coursework is designed for students to complete on their own time throughout the week. A weekly interactive live class gives students the opportunity to learn and engage with instructors and classmates in a virtual classroom that can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
Online part-time programs at Syracuse University represent the various pathways students can take to earn a degree or certificate at the University. Part-time students who are enrolled in an online degree program are fully supported by the Online Student Success (OSS) team at the College of Professional Studies. OSS advisors help make the transition to online learning seamless by helping to identify program requirements, monitoring academic progress and promptly responding to questions.
Applications are now open with financial assistance available. Students can apply to enroll in any of the six session starts throughout the year.
