Masters in Business  Analytics is a very popular program nowadays. Don’t know if it's because it's very relevant to tech and development in business or because the jobs in this area are paid very well. Come to think of it, I think it's both. Anyway, you are already on the right track by choosing this program, so good luck.

For best schools for Master in Business Analytics, I suggest looking for USA and UK based institutes. Look, I have two-two options from both places for you-


  • MIT (Sloan), USA
  • UCLA (Anderson), USA
  • Imperial College Business School, UK
  • Manchester (Alliance), UK

The USA is better for business studies than the UK of course. The degree from USA business school is more recognized and the partnership of the institutes are very global. This  gives you a big hard start when you start working in the business industry because your network only will bring you better options in your career. If you have a better budget, I suggest aiming for  either MIT or UCLA.

The UK on the other hand is better for specialization. Imperial and Manchester are already known for their business programs reputation. Plus the universities in the UK in general are more specialized. Therefore you are more likely to get a deep understanding of the subject there. Ultimately, the USA is good for a bigger degree and overall development. While the UK is better for specialization and in-depth knowledge.

FOr STEM designated, it doesn't matter. Because business analytics is a STEM course anyway. There is no other general business analytics program. This course uses all elements of STEM and of the major STEM designated business source.

You also need to make sure the school you apply to aligns with your profile. I know it can be a bit difficult to figure out the schools matching your profile.
