The world of business is rapidly evolving, and data is changing that landscape. Making informed decisions supported by data is critical to remaining competitive in today’s global economy. Traditional analytics is no longer enough. Businesses need individuals who can not only conduct advanced analyses, interpret their insights and recommend solutions but who can also act as a bridge between the business team and the data analyst. Graduates of the Business and Advanced Analytics program fill this need.
