Data is the information economy’s fuel; like solar energy, it is a renewable resource that can benefit everyone at once without being diminished. Data provides a record of what has already happened, but its main value comes from improved decision-making and predictive capabilities. 

By transforming quantitative data into qualitative insights, data analytics professionals shape organizational strategies and impact the bottom line. They also contribute to the greater social good, using data to address pressing challenges in health care, housing, poverty, education and transportation.

In the Katz School’s M.S. in Data Analytics and Visualization, you’ll learn to transform raw data into insightful output. You’ll master the underlying science of predictive and exploratory analyses as well as techniques for creating visualizations and data narratives. You’ll master in-demand tools like Python, SQL/NoSQL, Tableau, AWS and AutoML. And unlike other data analytics programs, you’ll experiment with basic AI and machine-learning techniques. Learn from world-class professionals and get real-world predictive and analytical skills in the heart of New York City. Generous scholarships and financial aid are available.

Data analytics jobs are plentiful, salaries are high and the career paths you can take are abundant. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics offers several different classifications for salaries and growth: financial analyst ($101,000); market research analyst ($71,500); and big data and machine learning. Companies large and small are seeking business analysts and data entrepreneurs who take an interdisciplinary approach to transforming data into a powerful, predictive and strategic asset. Yeshiva University’s M.S. in Data Analytics and Visualization prepares you for these in-demand analytics and data science careers.

Program Highlights

Learn the science behind the skills: build predictive and descriptive models and uncover reliable, repeatable patterns hidden in data

Get hands-on experience with structured and unstructured data, using corporate and open source datasets

Build predictive and descriptive models and perform exploratory analyses in verticals, such as e-commerce, marketing, social media, finance, real estate, sports and healthcare

Apply advanced analytics best practices to business problems: improve decision-making, build insights, penetrate new markets, reduce costly operations and monetize data capabilities

Gain industry experience through internships and research

Experts Creating Anti-Semitic Speech Index

Andrew Catlin, director of the Katz School’s M.S. in Data Analytics and Visualization program, and faculty member Brandon Chiazza have received a $7,500 grant from the Provost Faculty Research Fund to create a definitive repository of anti-Semitic hate speech.

“We want to create an index like the Dow Jones Industrial Average for anti-Semitic hate speech,” said Catlin, “that will raise the research profile of YU, support our U.S. News ranking, attract exceptional faculty and students, and help our students get great jobs.”

A Chance Encounter Leads to IBM Job

The very act of migrating is entrepreneurial, a self-selected risk taken by an individual to better one’s circumstances. It’s a mindset that served Jesus Olivera well at the Katz School of Science and Health. Jesus, who was recently awarded a master’s degree in Data Analytics and Visualization, defied his family’s wishes to pursue a career in Puerto Rico by migrating to New York City in 2012 at the age of 22.

Jesus said plunging into a new culture gave him “strength and focus” because he not only needed to learn English, he had to adjust to the frenetic pace of the city and corporate life. “Everything you do in life requires a level of effort and hard work, so I didn’t think my experience was different from anyone else’s,” he said.

Data Analytics in High Demand in New York City

Companies large and small are seeking business analysts and data entrepreneurs who take an interdisciplinary approach to transforming data into a powerful, predictive and strategic asset. New York City is in a period of explosive growth in data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning. With Silicon Valley as the AI capital of the West Coast, New York City dominates the eastern United States. According to research compiled by Bloomberg, for artificial intelligence and machine learning jobs, New York City is outpacing San Francisco with 11.6 percent of job postings on indeed.com compared to San Francisco’s 9.6 percent. New York is also home to more than 7,000 startups, hundreds of which are standouts in the field of AI and machine learning. The Bloomberg report concludes that while AI and machine learning jobs have doubled since 2015, there aren’t enough viable candidates to fill open positions.
