The Business Analytics minor has been designed to provide a foundation in business analytics concepts and methods for students in the College of Business and Economics. The minor focuses on the three fundamental areas in business analytics methods: descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive methods. In addition, students will have an opportunity to gain exposure to application areas of analytics in business and economics. The coursework for the minor is rigorous and is based on a foundation of quantitative and statistical methods.
The Business Analytics minor consists of five courses (20 credits, not including prerequisites). It is strongly recommended that students who undertake the Business Analytics minor program have a demonstrated proficiency with math and statistics (e.g., as evidenced by strong performance in DSCI 205: Business Statistics and DSCI 305: Applied Business Statistics).
