The Georgia Institute of Technology will be offering a new online master of science degree at a quarter of the cost of its on-campus program. The Institute’s top 10-ranked program in analytics will be delivered in collaboration with edX, the leading nonprofit MOOC provider.
Tuition for Georgia Tech’s Online Master of Science in Analytics (OMS Analytics) degree will be available for less than $10,000 beginning in August 2017. The residential program ranges from $36,000 for in-state students to $49,000 for out of state.
OMS Analytics will accept 250 students for the first semester and will grow over time as the program scales to meet demand and student needs. Full-time students can complete the program in one year, and most working professionals can earn the degree in two. Applications will be available Thursday, Jan. 12.
The new degree program will follow the same model as Georgia Tech’s highly successful online Master of Science in Computer Science (OMS CS) program that demonstrated to the world that quality education could be accessible at a lower price. OMS CS launched in 2014 and currently enrolls nearly 4,000 students.
Three of Georgia Tech’s OMS Analytics foundational courses will form the Analytics: Essential Tools and Methods MicroMasters program on edx.org. MicroMasters courses will be free to enroll and open to anyone. Learners who want to showcase their knowledge will be able to earn a MicroMasters certificate as a standalone credential for $1500.
Applications for the Georgia Tech OMS Analytics degree program will be available Thursday, Jan. 12. Additional details on the Georgia Tech OMS Analytics program can be found at http://omsanalytics.gatech.edu/.
Courses in the Analytics: Essential Tools and Methods MicroMasters program will be open for enrollment shortly. More information can be found at A Top Analytics Program in an Affordable, Flexible Way | edX Blog.
