About Business Analytics
We’re in the age of “Big Data,” and it’s certainly a fitting description. According to a study by IBM, 90 percent of the world’s data has been created since 2011.
Business and governments need sharp, savvy professionals who can help them manage a potentially overwhelming volume of data and a dizzying rate of creation and provide clarity. Graduates of this program will be able to analyze data and use the findings to guide organizational decision-making.
A business analytics degree offers a clear avenue to a fulfilling and financially-rewarding career. According to a study by McKinsey Global Institute, the U.S. will face a potential shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 professionals with sharp analytical skills by 2018. The study also highlights a need for another 1.5 million executives, managers and analysts who understand how to harness “Big Data” and utilize it in making decisions.
