EASTON – Stonehill College is launching a new data analytics master’s degree program at the college’s Leo J. Meehan School of Business, Stonehill announced this week.
The program is designed to be completed in 12 months, the school said, and students will also earn a joint certificate from the SAS Institute. The course will be a blended model of online and weekend courses – designed to cater to those in the professional fields. The program also includes a three-day seminar at the start of each semester.
The program is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2020, the school said. It will be called the Data Analytics Master of Professional Studies degree program. The school would like to have a cohort of about 12-16 students, according to school spokesman Martin McGovern.
McGovern said that applications for the program will open Oct. 1.
“Never before has data been so important in our lives,” said Data Analytics Program Director Michael Salé in a statement. “Not only does it help organizations make decisions but it’s of critical importance to the success of virtually every industry. Data analysis is a hugely sought-after skill in today’s job market, and it looks to only grow increasingly more so.”
