More Data More Depth

The data analytics field is rapidly expanding, and skilled individuals are in high demand. Projections are that this demand will continue into 2030 and beyond. The May 2018 report by McKinsey Global Institute entitled Skill Shift Automation and the Future of the Workforce states that the top three areas with the largest skill shortages today are data analytics, IT/mobile/web design, and R&D. The report also concludes that, as the use of AI expands, the demand for individuals with advanced data analytical skills will grow—even as much as 25% by 2030.

The Tufts Data Analytics program is designed to develop flexible leaders with advanced data analytical skills, who will be able to apply an in-depth knowledge of statistics, probability, and data analysis across a broad range of fields. We offer a master's program with electives that allow students to expand their knowledge and skills within a chosen field, and to develop the professional skills in communication, data visualization and critical thinking that employers seek. We also offer four certificates in data analytics and related fields. 

The Data Analytics program is supported by an Advisory Board of practicing experts, who help to ensure the curriculum provides you with the skills and knowledge that are needed to be successful in the field. Tufts faculty and staff have strong relationships with employers across industries and around the world. Your mentors, career officers, and faculty will make sure you have access to the competitive field experiences that often lead to full-time employment.

By engaging in active dialogue and stimulating coursework, you'll do more than just ask big questions. Your distinguished professors will also help you answer them, as you turn your inspiration into mastery and achieve your intellectual and professional goals.
