Why a Hybrid In-Person/Online Program?
Time is especially precious for adults with jobs and families. You want a graduate program that is flexible enough that you don’t need to change your life, job, or residence but still provides the full, rich experience that is a big part of higher education.
Harrisburg University’s executive hybrid graduate program in Panama is the perfect solution. By attending class once a month at the City of Knowledge, you gain the rich networking opportunities and one-on-one attention that bolster your studies. Then, by taking an online course during the week, you move your degree program forward at a pace so that you can complete your master's or Ph.D. within two years.
Plus all full-time students who enroll in six credits (two courses) for Spring 2022 will receive automatically a tuition scholarship of $1500 per semester.
Stay in Latin America
One of the best aspects of the Harrisburg graduate programs in Panama is that you don’t have to come to the United States, yet you’ll earn a fully accredited U.S. graduate degree. Entering another country can be a hassle and time-consuming. Since the Harrisburg Graduate Program in Panama only meets one Saturday a month on-site in Panama’s City of Knowledge, you can easily fit the program into your life.
Expand Your Professional Connections
Through the Harrisburg graduate program in Panama, you’ll make a wide range of professional contacts. These are connections that could become true assets to your future. You’ll study alongside entrepreneurs, scientists, community leaders, as well as experts from government, NGOs, and international organizations. By building your professional network during your degree program, you create a valuable resource you can call upon throughout your career.
The Promise of Panama
Standing as a gateway between North and South America, Panama is uniquely situated to bring economic and educational opportunities to the greater Latin American region. The regional population has demonstrated a strong interest in learning valuable skills and gaining knowledge that will lift them to a higher career path with a brighter future. With higher education, not only the individual but also the entire community becomes more prosperous.
For this reason, Harrisburg University of Science and Technology has been in negotiations with the City of Knowledge, Panama, to bring a campus to their location, a site already known as a center of education, research, and development. Taught by HU professors from the U.S., the new Panama campus will initially offer a Master of Science in Analytics degree, which will be delivered in a hybrid of online and on-campus classes in Panama. The campus will also offer a range of professional development opportunities to benefit the local communities. With the opening of Harrisburg University’s Panama campus, students can advance their education without leaving Latin America.

What Can You Do With a Graduate Degree in Analytics or Data Science?
A world of career opportunities opens when you have a master’s or Ph.D. in Analytics or Data Science.

Perhaps you’d prefer to work for yourself as an independent data analytics consultant helping a number of diverse clients for short periods. Higher salaries, greater professional respect, and influence come when you add a master’s degree or Ph.D. in Analytics or Data Science to your resume.
Current State of Graduate Education in Latin America
There is a significant shortage of employees who hold a Data Science or Analytics master's or Ph.D. in Latin America. In Brazil, there’s just one Ph.D. holder for every 70,000 people and in Chile, it’s even worse with one for every 140,000 people. Colombia has one Ph.D. for every 700,000 people. Compare that to the average in other countries of one Ph.D. for every 5,000 citizens. Typically, the limited graduate programs available in Latin America are small and staffed by teachers who themselves don’t hold a Ph.D. or often even a master’s degree. Research opportunities are minimal if they exist at all. Clearly, there’s room for a robust graduate program in Latin America. *
