NEW BUSINESS ANALYTICS TRACK AT MASTER'S LEVEL
Too many of today's companies are data-rich and information-poor. How can they use their big data to make big decisions? Business analytics (BA) and business intelligence (BI) offer a solution. BA and BI empower the organization and fuel effective decision making by using statistical methods to extract company data and ascertain vital information. This growing discipline requires specialized training. To address this need we have developed a new track for the MSIS program. This track, Business Analytics, concentrates on technologies and skills needed to analyze large data sets to gain insights which help improve business decisions and planning. Courses in this track cover such topics as data mining, data warehousing, and statistical techniques. For further information contact the MSIS Graduate Advisor.
