Business Analytics Career Opportunities

The business world is just getting started with big data and business analytics. According to “The Quant Crunch,” a study performed by Burning Glass Technologies, Business-Higher Education Forum (BHEF), and IBM, by 2020 the number of Data Science and Analytics job listings is projected to grow by nearly 364,000 listings to approximately 2,720,000 (18%). Career opportunities continue to grow exponentially and there is no end in sight.

However, the professionals that will be filling these positions must have the right education and experience to be up to par, because according to the same study, 39% of Data Scientists and Advanced Analyst positions require a Master’s or Ph.D. This means that demand – as well as salaries – will skyrocket. There is no better time to prepare for a bright future in the fast-paced and exciting world of data and analytics
