Thanks to our high-tech centers and labs, Bentley is consistently ranked among the top schools in the nation for state-of-the-art campus facilities in the Princeton Review's annual "Best 296 Business Schools" guide. The MSBA program is designed to provide students with solid training in data analysis using state-of-the-art software, allowing them to immediately make an impact in analytics roles in both large corporations and specialized companies. Our approach involves an in-depth understanding of analytics techniques widely used in corporations (such as logistic regression and cluster analysis), proficiency with leading statistical software packages (SAS, SPSS and R), and a solid background in database management and SQL (structured query language).
Outside of the classroom, other high-tech resources on campus include the Hughey Center for Financial Services Trading Room provides real-time Wall Street data, and access to a wealth of other financial information. The Academic Technology Center maintains licenses to SAS and all leading analytics software tools. Other leading-edge resources include the Center for Marketing Technology (CMT), the User Experience Center (UXC) and the Computer Information System (CIS) Sandbox.
