BAB in Business Analytics

The focus of business analytics is the analysis of data to develop decision or predictive models for use in a business environment.  To be successful in this field, a graduate requires two primary sets of skills: those of analytics and those of business.  Thus, this is a double core program.  The students will complete the core associated with the BAB and also a portion of the analytics core associated with the BS in Data Analytics.  

Student Learning Outcomes

  • Think critically when making decisions about appropriate analytic methods
  • Use the technical skills associated with the storage, management and cleaning of data
  • Accurately perform the relevant analytic methods for a given context
  • Communicate the results of analyses effectively to the relevant audiences
  • Recognize and address ethical issues related to privacy, intellectual property, and data security

Note: ECON 200 and ECON 201 are considered supporting courses and may be used to fulfill GECRs as well as requirements for the Business Administration degree. However, these courses are not counted twice toward the total of 180 credits for graduation.
