    Reviews

    AB
    9.0 /10

    The drive to make business organizations data-oriented has created a huge demand for data scientists and analysts. Therefore I applied to this university for an MS in Analytics. I applied online and also paid the $65 application fee. The university required me to submit my official transcripts, work experience, statement of purpose essays, and other necessary documents along with my application. With my 85% marks at the graduation level and my 3+ years of work experience in the corporate world, I was confident about my chances of admission.

    Course Curriculum :

    As a graduate student in the field of learning analytics, I am taught key concepts of educational data mining methodologies, relevant policy, legal and ethical issues involved in conducting analytics on educational data. Our course work prepares us to become researchers and professionals in data technology companies, data groups in the federal department of education and so on.
