Careers in business analysis are growing in popularity. Business and data analysts assist organizations in making data-driven decisions by querying information sources, generating reports, and identifying patterns and trends—and in the U.S., the role of “data analysts and scientists” is in the second highest demand, according to a 2020 survey by the World Economic Forum.

Online master’s degree programs in data science allow even more prospective students access to skills that can land them a high-paying, rewarding job.

As Fortune reported in May, the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s undergraduate major in data science is the fastest-growing and fourth-largest major on the campus—a key reason why the university decided to launch a master’s degree program in the field later this year. 

Many online master’s in data science programs don’t require applicants to submit GRE scores—a trend that has also been seen in online MBA degree programs.
