Business Analytics

Concentration Overview

Business Analytics is a combination of statistics and mathematical computing logic applied to business issues in real-life. It is the scientific process of transforming data into insight for making a data-driven or fact-based decision. The increase in data collection capabilities through advances in scanner technology and an explosion in computing power and storage capacities have greatly enhanced the use of data to understand the behavior and activity patterns of consumers and producers. This has also enabled organizations to solve critical business problems faster and more accurately than ever before.
