Available part-time and full-time, the program is anchored by three week-long courses on Columbia’s campus in New York City that feature networking, group exercises, and guest lecturers. Between these courses, you will complete additional coursework on campus or online through a networked learning platform. For your final capstone project, you will apply your knowledge to develop a real-world analytics project sponsored by a leading organization.

Program Structure

The program consists of required courses in two core areas. The Leadership, Management, and Communication Core develops an enterprise-wide perspective on data and the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to inspire, create, and foster an analytical culture within an organization. The Applied Analytics Core develops a broad understanding of the frameworks for the use of data to inform real-life business problems from data collection to application in decision-making. This core introduces you to the methods and range of tools and systems that organizations use to conceptualize, collect, manage, and analyze data to produce information to make it actionable across their enterprise.
For your elective study, you will align the foundational skills you've developed in the two core areas with three courses you choose that are pertinent to your academic and professional goals. Elective courses in a wide range of subjects, including business, finance, marketing, information visualization, collaboration, communication, and negotiation, let you obtain in-depth knowledge in a particular industry or functional area within an organization.
Completing your Integrated Capstone Project, you will apply what you have learned in the two core components to a real-world analytics project sponsored by a leading organization.
