A Focus on Analytics
In an era of data-driven business decisions, there is no question that business analytics is a hot topic. Data mining and analysis are high demand skills desired by employers and professionals across a variety of fields and industries. Recognizing this demand and the promising career outlook, the Stillman School of Business has been placing particular focus on the field of analytics.
"The Stillman School continues to expand analytics in the curriculum," said Professor David Rosenthal, chair of the Department of Computing and Decision Sciences. "Last year we launched an online Master's in Business Analytics. In the recent past, we've also introduced new courses in analytics in our supply chain management and sports management specializations." New this year is an undergraduate major in financial technology, which will be an intersection of finance and business analytics.
