What to Expect
Freshman & Sophomore Years
In your first two years as a Business Analytics major, you’ll take courses drawn primarily from the university core curriculum. These courses promote the development of key skills and prepare you for the rigorous training in your major. In addition, you’ll be exposed to Contemporary Business Issues, Micro and Macro Economics, Accounting, Business Law and the principles of Business Analytics. Make sure you pay a visit to the Office of Professional and Career Development since it’s never too early to prepare for the job market.
You will focus on your major coursework for your major, including Big Data I and II and Predictive Modeling I. Take a look at the clubs and organizations that the college has to offer as these may open the door to scholarships and internships, and don’t forget the opportunities for international travel and study abroad.
You’ll focus on an area of concentration within the major that best suits your talents and goals, taking core courses in Predictive Modeling II and Communicating Quantitative Results and supplementing them with a range of electives in Finance, Information Systems, Marketing, Logistics, Supply Chain and Statistics. And you’ll begin the job interview process.
