In 2013, NUS Business Analytics Centre (BAC) was established in collaboration with IBM to develop a talent pool of business analytics professionals to meet the needs of companies looking to improve their businesses through the use of analytics. In a 5-year collaboration that ensued, NUS offered academic expertise to design, craft and conduct the Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) programme while IBM contributed industrial knowledge.
Global interest in the field of business data analytics has since grown tremendously, with companies across various industries actively seeking for talents who excel in the analytics field.
To date, near to 350 industrial analytics projects were completed by NUS MSBA students, with the school forming valuable partnerships with more than 100 organisations.
The NUS MSBA offered by the NUS BAC is ranked Asia No. 1*. Aside, the two schools which supported and co-designed the programme’s curriculum, namely, NUS Business School and NUS Computing, are also first in each of their fields within Asia.
The master's degree programme aims to develop professionals with business analytics skills that will meet the growing demands of companies looking to improve their operations through data analytics.
Offered in Singapore, local and overseas students are welcomed. Students can choose to take it as a full-time (13 months) or part-time (2-year) programme.
Graduates from the NUS Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) will be well-equipped with skills such as machine learning to excel in the data-analytics field across various industries such as finance, retail, information technology, supply chain, and healthcare.
