Program Overview

Business analytics (BA) refers to all the methods and techniques that are used by an organization to measure performance. Business analytics are made up of statistical methods that can be applied to a specific project, process or product. Business analytics can also be used to evaluate an entire company. Business analytics are performed in order to identify weaknesses in existing processes and highlight meaningful data that will help an organization prepare for future growth and challenges.

The employment potential in Data Analytics and Big Data comes in the form of the very highly skilled jobs for data analysts/data scientist’s proficient in areas such as mathematics, statistics, economics, engineering and management science and with the associated IT skills required to mine and analyze the data concerned. Along with the demand for big data, better data, and the need for greater insight into organizations operations comes the need for analytic professionals who can effectively leverage this data to maximize business benefits.
