The Business Analytics concentration focuses on how businesses gather data to create useful business models. Designed for students who are strong in math and computer technology — who also think creatively — it is the perfect program for students who want to work on a degree in business and a minor in mathematics.
Our business programs embrace liberal arts education, which develops nimble minds for a fast-changing workplace. The Business Analytics concentration incorporates adventurous thinking with required skills in statistics, research, data mining, and business model building.
The business world demands colleagues with solid math skills, comfort with technology, and those with business sense to ask the right questions. Classes are taught by faculty with real-world experience – and broad real-world contacts.
Combine those distinctions with a clear-eyed focus on ethics, the most up-to-date curriculum, independent research – and you can see how this degree can transform you into an industry innovator.
