Map of University Programs in Big Data Analytics

To achieve the benefits of big data analytics, you need people with the skills who can do the work. Increasing demand for analytics and data science skills has prompted universities to create new degree programs and update existing curricula. Data Informed is tracking the best big data university programs around the United States to learn more about what students can expect—the approach of each program as well as the coursework, tuition costs and whether the program includes an internship, among other considerations.


Click on the points in the map above to learn more about specific programs.  Each red dot on the map links to a Data Informed article on the program, or other online resources with more information.

We will be updating this map regularly so revisit to check out colleges that have been added. Have a comment or a suggestion for a program to add? Please contact Managing Editor Scott Etkin at
