Over the course of 12 months of study, the M.S. in Business Analytics Program is delivered in a working professional-friendly format in the Washington, D.C., area and on the historic Grounds of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
Weekend Residencies Take Place in UVA’s New D.C. Area Location
Seven of the program’s two-day residencies (Saturday-Sunday) take place at UVA’s new, state-of-the-art facilities in the downtown Arlington, Va., district of Rosslyn. The dynamic space, housed on the top two floors of a 31-story building, provides classrooms, offices, and event space.
The LEED-EB Gold Certified building at 1100 Wilson Boulevard is located near the Potomac River and features panoramic views of Washington, D.C. Immediately outside the building is the two-block-long Freedom Park, a walkway lined with gardens that offers a quiet and green refuge in the bustling urban environment.
The new UVA space offers smart workplace design and optimal educational aesthetics. Facilities include two tiered classrooms, flat classrooms, learning team rooms, open-study areas, a boardroom, conference rooms, and office space. A large ballroom serves as a food service and event space. The facilities also include access to a 5,000-square-foot rooftop terrace offering sweeping views of the area, including the National Mall.
When studying at the D.C. area location, students have access to lodging at a number of four-star hotels located within walking distance.
M.S. in Business Analytics Students Will Also Spend Time on UVA’s Historic Charlottesville Grounds
Twice during the 12-month program, during Module 1 and Module 5, students have a four-day residency (Thursday-Sunday), providing the opportunity to study on the historic UVA Grounds in Charlottesville, Va. During these residencies, students receive accommodations at the Inn at Darden, an executive hotel with full amenities. In addition to intensive study and community building within the cohort, these residencies provide students with opportunities to explore UVA — the only university UNESCO World Heritage Site in North America — and Charlottesville, a city consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the United States and a recognized destination for food, wine, and the arts.
