The UNH Center for Business Analytics and the Paul College Graduate Programs Office have collaborated on a new scholarship opportunity for UNH College of Engineering & Physical Sciences students interested in pursuing a master’s degree in business analytics.

Undergraduate students admitted into the MS Business Analytics program will automatically qualify for a scholarship in the range of $5,000 to $10,000. In addition, students may have opportunities to complete an internship or Graduate Assistantship with the Center for Business Analytics and/or Paul College.

Paul College’s MS Business Analytics Program

Students in the MS Business Analytics program will develop skills in data analysis and visualization, predicting/forecasting future probabilities and trends, and helping leaders make decisions in resource-constrained environments. The program is comprised of 12 courses/36 credit hours.

Rebecca Barbour, director of Graduate Programs for the Paul College, said the new scholarship program will expand access and help fund academically qualified students who are interested in an MS in Business Analytics. With the Accelerated Master’s option available, UNH undergraduates can start taking MSBA courses in their senior year, saving on tuition and time to completion once they become a graduate student. 

The Center for Business Analytics

Established in 2021, the Center for Business Analytics bridges industry and academics, connecting companies with UNH’s wealth of technology, resources, and expertise. Supported by professors and students, the center helps organizations build capacity to manage and analyze data.

“The students at the College of Engineering & Physical Sciences are smart, innovative thinkers who can make a real impact for our industry clients and partners,” said Andrew Mitchell, assistant director of the Center for Business Analytics.
