SCU’s Data Analytics Program Ranked Top 3 Nationally

Santa Clara University ranks no. 3 for the Best Value Big Data Graduate Program of 2016.

Value Colleges compiled a list of the top 50 Residential Big Data Graduate Programs this year, based on Payscale’s 2015-2016 College Salary Report, US News & World Reports ranking, and the actual cost of education.

"Data Analytics is the technical term, but everyone knows it a Big Data," writes Value Colleges. "Actually, 'everyone' isn’t quite true – Big Data has been called 'the fastest-growing job market you’ve never heard of' by the Globe and Mail, and “the Next Frontier” by McKinsey Global Institute. In other words, not many people know what it means, no one knows exactly where it’s going, and there are definitely not enough people doing it. It’s an exciting time, with projected employee shortages estimated well into the millions, so getting into the field now means making a career path where few have trod and no one is likely to get in your way.

"SCU’s Leavey School of Business – one of the most respected in California – offers a Master of Science in Business Analytics designed by and for Silicon Valley and the Bay Area, preparing students for exactly the kind of work they will be doing in real world, with exactly the kind of knowledge and problem-solving skills they will need."
