This 30 credit program is designed to enable students to learn how to use data-driven approaches to solve business challenges in the era of big data.
Business analytics is at the intersection of statistics, operations research, and computer science. This program offers a broad yet rigorous curriculum in data science (statistics, data mining, computer language, stochastic modeling, econometrics), applied analytics (finance, marketing, operations), and management science (optimization, simulation). The curriculum provides the skills, insight, and capability to transform data into insightful information that will lead to better results, and enables our graduates to understand the role of evidence-based data in decision-making and how to transform data into a powerful and predictive strategic asset that will ultimately drive optimal results. Students learn about the use of analytics in particular functional areas, such as, finance, marketing or operations, as well as, acquiring general knowledge of data analytics and business computing.
