Trying to decide between getting my Masters of Science in Analytics from Villanova, or my Masters in Business Analytics from Arizona State University. Since both programs are fairly new it's hard to find reviews. Has anyone done either of these programs? I have about 12 days before I have to give the schools my decisions.

ASU is ranked #3 for online graduate business schools. Villanova is ranked #4. Villanova seems a little more involved, constantly developing and improving program, and just added programming in R as a course, but it is 24 months instead of ASU's 16 months. Costs are about the same.

Right now I'm leaning towards Villanova. Anyone know more about these programs?

Is this an online masters?

ASU has been doing more innovation in the MBA world (Free MBA) which has propelled it to the #25 in the MBA rankings

Are those online masters or class masters? Does Arizona provide the master with its MBA program or stand alone master?

If they are both online, where you want to live is going to matter more. Arizona has a great reputation out west, but is largely unheard of on the east coast. I have occasionally heard radio advertisements for them, but that's it. Villanova is the opposite. It is a well respected school in the northeast(mostly philly/nj), but not much beyond that.

With either option you will be limited geographically, and then even more with online programs due to a lack of recruiting. I doubt there is much of a difference between the core knowledge, it is just a matter of which name you'd prefer to have on your resume and where you'd like to settle.
