Master of Information Systems Management - Business Intelligence and Data Analytics (MISM-BIDA)

The Master of Information Systems Management (MISM) degree with a Business Intelligence and Data Analytics (BIDA) concentration is developing an elite set of graduates cross-trained in business process analysis and skilled in predictive modeling, GIS mapping, analytical reporting, segmentation analysis, and data visualization.

Organizations across the world are struggling to develop the know-how to aggregate, analyze, and most importantly monetize the growing surge of available data. Current discussions with banking, healthcare, retail, and government entities point to a severe shortage of individuals that have the combined business, analytics, IT, and communications skills required to be leaders in this field. The School of Information Systems and Management at Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College is perfectly positioned to educate these leaders and provide them with a unique ability to analyze data and effectively communicate the gathered business intelligence.
