Computing and Data Science

Concentrate in Computing and Data Science

For course descriptions, prerequisites and course scheduling options, please review the Course Index.

 Computing and Data Science Program Requirements (12 units)

Students who choose to pursue a Computing & Data Science (CDS) concentration must take four information systems INFO-UB electives, in addition to the required core course, INFO-UB 1 (Information Technology in Business and Society).
Four (4) Computing and Data Science Electives (12 units) Any INFO-UB elective or approved course (see below).

Additional courses approved to count as Computer & Data Science electives: 

Decision Models & Analytics MULT-UB 7
Decision Making Under Uncertainty MULT-UB 16
Foundations in Fintech MULT-UB 80
Decision Analytics for Sports OPMG-UB 54
Regression and Multivariate Data Analysis STAT-UB 17

  1. Students may also import one (and only one) ​computer science elective with the permission of the undergraduate faculty adviser.  

    - CSCI-UA 2 (Introduction to Programming (Python)) can be imported​. However, ​this class cannot be counted together with INFO-UB 23 towards the requirements for the concentration, as they have substantial overlap.
    - CSCI-UA 102 (Data Structures) does not overlap in content with other Stern courses and can be imported.​
    - CSCI-UA 4 (Introduction to Web Design and Computer Principles) does not count towards the Computing & Data Science concentration.
  2. Juniors and seniors may also register for selected MBA courses if these courses do not have an equivalent undergraduate course. The permission of the Undergraduate Advising Office is required.
  3. A Stern elective course may satisfy only one concentration requirement (e.g., Decision Models and Analytics can count toward the Operations concentration requirement OR as an advanced C&SD elective, but it cannot satisfy both requirements)
