Working with communities and businesses, Ryerson University has created an innovative new master’s program in Data Science and Analytics that addresses current skills gaps and the needs of employers. This interdisciplinary program will produce highly trained data scientists using an interdisciplinary approach so that students gain a solid understanding of how data analytics help improve decisions throughout an organization’s value chain. Engaging with industry partners such as IBM, St. Michael’s Hospital, the Hospital for Sick Children, Microsoft Research, the Globe and Mail, and the Toronto Stock Exchange, Ryerson master’s students will access extensive data on health care, software engineering, social media, services and finance to acquire hands-on experience with analytics tools that are widely used in the workplace.

“Graduates are in high demand in any industry segment, government or research that collects, analyzes to understand patterns, and uses data to make decisions.”
Dr. Ayse Bener
Director of Big Data in the Office of Provost and Vice President, Academic at Ryerson University
