About us

The Specialized Masters in Business Analytics (SMB-A) at Ohio State's Fisher College of Business is a 10-month program that equips students with an understanding of the science of data analytics and its implication for business innovation, productivity and growth.  

Although open to all students, the STEM-designated degree is targeted mainly at working professionals who are looking to acquire graduate-level knowledge and credentials in business analytics in order to accelerate their careers or execute a career shift into this growing field.

The program uses a hybrid course delivery format, blending a mix of 75 percent online instruction with 25 percent on-campus Saturday classes involving in-depth discussion, live demonstration and explorations of subjects and hands-on individual and group exercises.
