  (March 09, 2017)

EUGENE, Ore., March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published a ranking of the 50 Best Online Big Data Degrees for 2017.

Schools are quickly mobilizing to create highly specific programs tailored to the growing need for professionals who know how to wrangle terabytes of information, interpret it, and explain to the rest of us how it effects a company's needs on the ground. And many of these programs are available in to online students.

"Over the course of a relatively short time, big data has left no industry untouched, so there is a desperate need for expertise in this field," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said of the ranking. "Online programs in big data go by different names?often a Master of Science in business analytics or data mining?but what they have in common is a commitment to training future big data professionals who will help us figure out what to do with the masses of information at our disposal."

College Choice developed its list by looking at academic quality along with return on investment?the differential between tuition costs and average early career earnings.
