The Minor in Business Data Analytics prepares students to learn how to make data-driven decision making. Foundational coursework for the minor teaches students in a range of disciplines how to collect, store interpret and present data after discovering meaningful insights.

It is an opportunity for students across disciplines to develop an appreciation of the differences between disciplines on how to approach a problem, to compliment their major with skills and knowledge, and to build their career in this fast-growing and important field of data-driven decision-making. The minor in business data analytics would be valuable for students from any major and/or concentration who want to sharpen their critical thinking, cognitive development, problem solving, creativity, data/analytical decision-making and information technology-enablement skills.
