Specialize in Data Driven Innovation for IT Managers

This specialization develops valuable skills in data retrieval, mining, analysis, and reporting that are becoming increasingly useful across all sectors. Data majors become skilled problem-solvers and innovators, adapting to the changing needs of a modern enterprise.

Data analytics is the process of extracting meaning from raw data using anything from a laptop to specialized computer systems. These systems transform, organize, and model the data to draw conclusions and identify patterns, leading to increases in knowledge and market share that have significant implications for an organization’s profitability. The need for graduates with these skills crosses all types of business including agriculture, construction, finance, retail, government, manufacturing and not-for-profits.
