You have a strong focus and that's good. Unfortunately, I don't have a broad knowledge of MS programs with this focus, so I simply don't know the answer to your questions.
I do know that NYU Stern has an executive MS program in business analytics. You may want to look at it or see if there is something more along the lines of what you're looking for there.
