Business Analytics 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.
