About the Program

Supply Chain, Information and Analytics is for problem solvers who love to work with data. Agile businesses rely on statistics and data analysis to make informed decisions on everything from client services to vendor management. Data is collected, stored in databases, analyzed and used to create efficiency in operations.  Data is now viewed as the most valuable asset a company has.  The challenge is turning data into information that guides strategy, customer service, and market analysis.  Technical knowledge in management information systems, business analytics, supply chain and operations provides support for every level of management in every business.

You’ve probably heard terms like supply chain, operations efficiency, big data, cloud computing, data mining, data science and digital economy. Learn what they mean, how they work and how they affect businesses. You’ll study a foundation of management courses to understand the different parts of a business. Data analytics - including statistical analysis, data modeling and database management - is stressed in this program. You may choose to dive deeper into one or more of these three areas: Supply Chain and Operations, Management Information Systems or Business Analytics.

Through a data-driven approach graduates are optimizing business performance as Data Analytics Managers, IT consultants, and Logistics Analysts for Accenture, IBM, Deloitte, Microsoft, General Motors and other companies.

Krannert also offers a Master of Science in Business Analytics and Information Management.  MS BAIM is a full-time, 11-month program beginning in June every year, designed to educate students in state-of-the-art information technologies and analytical techniques. Students will undergo a rigorous curriculum and develop facility with a variety of software tools currently used in business. Students will also have opportunities to apply what they are learning to real-world problems through experiential learning.
