Who is this program for?
For candidates who have recently graduated from university or college, as well as individuals with up to three years of work experience who want to influence business decisions and strategy through harnessing the predictive capabilities of data and business analytics.
Non-U.S. residents who receive a Master of Business Statistics will also qualify for up to three years of OPT (Optional Practical Training) in the U.S. after their studies.

What you’ll learn
Companies such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon have demonstrated the profitability of harnessing the predictive power of large-scale consumer data. In this new world of information overload, employers actively seek candidates who have the ability to translate data into actionable solutions. Hult’s one-year Master of Business Statistics degree will place you at the intersection of statistical analysis and business knowledge so that you can make meaningful, impactful contributions.
At Hult’s San Francisco campus, you’ll learn how to harness the power of information near some of the most prestigious professional names in big data. Within just miles of campus you’ll find the San Francisco headquarters of both Google and Twitter, two giants leading the transformation of how businesses leverage big data. Bright minds will also follow you into the classroom. Hult professor Olaf Groth, for example, worked for global enterprises like Vodafone and Boeing before launching his own consultancy, and he brings that experience into the classroom teaching global strategy.
Core courses form the backbone of your Master of Business Statistics curriculum. You will study them throughout modules A – C.

Change never stops, so your business learning shouldn’t either. We empower you to stay up-to-date with emerging trends by taking a complimentary elective each year for the rest of your life.
One elective a year, on us.
Most careers span decades and critical skills can change as you progress in seniority. The rapid pace of change also means future critical business knowledge might have simply been impossible to learn during your program. Before 2004 there was no Facebook or YouTube; neither the iPhone nor Airbnb existed prior to 2007; and yet understanding the impact of these innovations is critical for business success today. At Hult, you can refresh a skillset or get up to speed in a new business trend by enrolling in one elective a year at any of our global campuses. There’s a small registration fee, but the course is otherwise free of charge.
Executive education options for life.
Instead of studying an elective, every year Hult alumni can enroll in a range of leadership Summer Executive Education Programs at our historic Ashridge Estate campus in Berkhamsted, U.K. Courses feature a range of leadership and development programs, and are taught by experts with practical, theoretical, and commercial experience. There’s a small registration fee, but courses otherwise cost over $10,000 so the savings over time for Hult alumni are significant.
