Almost every Connecticut university has something to offer an analytics student. In our listings of CT analytics degrees & certificates, you’ll see programs at big public universities, well-known private universities, and Catholic schools. Yale doesn’t have a dedicated degree in analytics, but you can customize an MBA or management degree with analytics coursework. When you’re assessing CT options, check the curricula and faculty credentials. Because Connecticut is a business-focused state, there may be less emphasis on technical coursework at certain schools.
Research & Career-Building
Yale opened the doors of its Institute for Foundations of Data Science (FDS) in 2022, and it often hosts seminars in analytics-related projects. If you want to meet fascinating faculty & researchers, it’s a solid place to start. Looking for internships or project experience? Check out the industry partnerships at UConn’s Center for the Advancement of Business Analytics (CABA), ECSU student projects at the Eastern Institute for Data Analytics (EIDA), public interest analytics projects & tools at CTData, and Yale’s Digital Humanities Lab (DHLab).
You may need to pay a visit to NYC to attend major analytics conferences & summits—Connecticut takes a backseat to the Big Apple for industry events. For local networking, try the annual CTData Conference and university-sponsored events. Yale’s School of Management runs its own Data Analytics Club and hosts a Yale Customer Insights Conference. And the Statistical Data Science Lab at UConn hosts an annual UConn Sports Analytics Symposium.
