At Redlands, students can pursue a degree in Computer Science (B.A. or B.S.) and an M.S. Business Analytics degree concurrently. The CS program allows two courses from the graduate MS Business Analytics degree to double-count for the requirements in the B.S. and B.A. Computer Science degrees. This provides a pathway for CS students to earn an undergraduate degree in computer science along with an M.S. in Business Analytics in a total of five years.
An undergraduate degree in Computer Science combined with an M.S. in Business Analytics is a powerful tool in today’s marketplace. Together, these two degrees increase a student's career potential due to the specialization of high-demand skills in data analytics, big data visualization, and location analytics methodologies.
Computer Science students interested in pursuing the M.S. Business Analytics may take courses in the graduate program and double count them for the requirements in the Computer Science program.
The (4+1) pathway provides students the opportunity to complete four years of undergraduate study while concurrently working toward a master's degree.
Students can complete one additional year of graduate coursework and earn the Master of Science in Business Analytics.
Undergraduate CS students are eligible to apply to this program once they reach junior or senior standing. Applications to the M.S. Business Analytics program are available from Graduate Admissions.
The M.S. Business Analytics degree comprises nine courses, but Redlands allows two courses to double-count for the requirements in the B.S. or B.A. Computer Science degree.
