Business Analytics Specialization
The business analytics specialization deals with the use of data and mathematical and statistical models as a means for aiding the decision process in all of the functional areas of business. The use of data and models has become very important in business because of the volume of data available as a result of the internet and the increasing number and sophistication of electronic touch points among people and business and government entities. The use of computer and information technology plays an important part in this specialization.
(Formerly Data, Models & Decisions)
A specialization in business analytics enables the student to understand and use different mathematical and statistical models to apply to their own area of interest. As examples:
- A financial analyst may want to predict returns on a stock or index based on historical data.
- A production engineer may want to predict the time it takes to complete a given task in terms of characteristics of that task.
- A media buyer may want to measure the impact of advertising and other variables on sales.
