Business Analytics Major

Become a part of a prospering sub-field of business while serving your community and humanity.

With the rapid development of computer information systems in businesses and organizations, data analytics is quickly becoming a highly sought-after tool for problem-solving.

Learn by doing with simulations, internships, research, and case studies. Use your skills to think critically and to advocate for your community and for humanity.

Our program provides small, student-centered classes with seasoned faculty who care about each individual student. Our philosophy of business, enterprise, and society sets us apart from others universities, something that becomes rapidly evident to employers. We believe in business for the common good.
