You receive both the theoretical and practical knowledge essential to applying advanced business data analytics methods and models to a diverse set of business topics and challenges across these functional concentrations in our program.
Data analytics is a limited, competitive enrollment program available only to business administration majors by application at the end of spring of the junior year. In addition to strong performance through junior year, especially in quantitative courses (minimum grades of B in MGQ 201, MGQ 301 and MGS 351), you must be a business administration major with a declared primary concentration in financial analysis, human resources management, management information systems, marketing, or operations and supply chain management.
