The Marketing Insights and Analytics track of our specialized Master’s of Science in Business helps provide the critical link between the promise of abundant data and actionable business insights gleaned from these data. By focusing on the combination of marketing (which gives a theoretical understanding of what drives customer behaviors) and analytics (which provides big data analytical techniques), you’ll develop the skills to drive informed business decisions and marketing strategies. The Oregon State specialized Master’s of Science in business allow you to customize the degree with a wide range of electives.
Supply Chain Analytics is a combination of the disciplines of Supply Chain and Logistics Management and Business Analytics. Supply Chain and Logistics Management develops a solid mastery of international operations, logistics, and supply chain management concepts and methods. Business Analytics leverages advances in software interoperability, data exchange mechanisms and data mining and visualization techniques to better understand their operations, customers, and markets enabling graduates to manage internal operations and global supply chains in the manufacturing and service sectors and in government agencies. The combination of these two disciplines into Supply Chain Analytics is a unique focus on the uses of data management and data analytics to explore the characteristics of supply chains and identify value-enhancing efficiencies.
