Applied Business Data Analytics*
The concentration in applied business data analytics is created for students who are interested in practical uses for computer-based tool suites that are capable of managing vast amounts of data; providing sophisticated but easy to use means to manage and analyze that data; and to leverage those tools for making good decisions about projects, process designs and fundamental decision making tasks. Exposure to predictive analytics and modeling, big data techniques and visualization provides significant insight into the advanced uses of the computer-based tools. Critical thinking is an important skill and mindset that is required to establish and evaluate evidence-based benchmarks for making good decisions leading to high quality outcomes.
