Businesses are collecting massive amounts of data every day and need professionals to help them make sense of that data. This data is critical in helping companies maintain a competitive advantage by producing data-driven insights for decision makers. The Business Administration: Business Analytics program prepares graduates to apply statistical, computing, and economics methods to help corporate managers make better business decisions. Students work with real world business data from marketing, economics, finance, human resource management, supply chain management, etc. and analyze it using descriptive, predictive and prescriptive business analytics methods. The program utilizes the latest business analytics software to manage data, develop visualization, and perform statistical and machine learning analysis. This program provides a great preparation for business analytics, data science, and MBA graduate programs.
