Why Predictive Analytics?

Ever wish you could predict the future? So do companies big and small. That’s why they turn to predictive analytics to identify the likelihood of future outcomes based on historical data. Predictive analytics professionals apply a variety of techniques like data mining, predictive modeling, deep learning algorithms, machine learning, and even artificial intelligence to sets of data to, quite literally, predict trends and behavior patterns.

Predictive analytics proves to be a growing area of significance for businesses around the world. Unlike business analytics, which focuses on past performance patterns, predictive analytics uses data big or small to anticipate—and plan for—the future.

The Degree You Need to Lead the Charge

The need for talented analytics professionals is bigger than ever. Whether you’re dabbling in data or an expert in the making, a Master’s Degree in Predictive Analytics from Moravian Graduate Online is your chance to be part of something big and stand out from the crowd.

The demand for employees with big data expertise has increased by over 85% in just four years, but companies are looking for so much more than number crunchers—they need leaders, strategic thinkers, and well-rounded analysts. They’re looking for data analysts who can spot trends and turn them into plans.

  • Chief Data Officer
  • Customer Insight Analyst
  • Big Data Developers
  • Head of Data Science
