Business Data Analytics Emphasis

School of Business and Economics


Join the Growing Feild of Big Data

The business data analytics emphasis is one of the first of its kind in the nation to explore the science of big data. Big data is all about the transformation of data from traditionally unconnected sources into powerful and predictive information that allows businesses to make better decisions and drive optimal results. In these courses, you will investigate the principles of data representation, management, statistical modeling, and analysis, and then apply these concepts to uncover patterns, relationships, and trends.

Big data is a career field with boundless opportunities – having created an estimated 4.4 million jobs in 2015. There will be plenty of career opportunities for analysts in the fields of business, nonprofit, science, engineering management, healthcare, finance, and government. Yet researchers predict that only one-third of these jobs will be filled because of the lack of qualified candidates.

With a degree in Business Administration: Business Data Analytics, some of the jobs and skill sets you will be prepared for include:
