Bachelor of Science in Business - Business Analytics Concentration
A Concentration in Business Analytics provides undergraduate students with analytical tools and the conceptual framework to understand and apply decision modeling regardless of a dataset's size or complexity.
Analytics is defined as the extensive use of statistical and quantitative models and fact based management to drive decisions and actions. But it is more than just modeling and data manipulation. It is a process of transforming data into actions through analysis and insight, in the context of organizational decision making and problem solving.
Career Options in Business Analytics
Students who complete the concentration in Business Analytics are particularly strong job candidates due to a need for decision makers with strong analytical skills and experience with big data.
Business Analytics students will be able to combine their data manipulation and model building skills with managerial insight. Combining the Business Analytics concentration with other courses in finance or marketing, or in other fields such as engineering, public policy, and international affairs give students a significant edge in job market.
Concentrations are only available to GWSB students. See Concentrations under GW School of Business Undergraduate Regulations in this Bulletin for additional information.
