Data Analytics


Department of Data Analytics

The amount of data in the business world collectible through information technology such as point-of-sale systems, GPS, websites, social media, smartphones, apps, Internet of Things devices, RFID sensors, smart devices, and networks is growing exponentially, and new models and methods to mine data, and unstructured, real-time data in particular (such as social media posts, online user reviews, pictures and videos posted online, and consumer online behavior), have been continually developed. Data analytics approaches are getting more and more sophisticated thanks to the advancement of information technology. Traditional data management tools such as Microsoft Excel and SQL are not sufficient to handle data anymore. Therefore, the demand for knowledgeable and skilled professionals who can leverage big datasets in business settings is extremely high. The need for data-literate managers with solid analytical skills has never been greater. In recognition of this need the College of Management created the Data Analytics programs at both undergraduate (BSDA) and graduate (MDA) levels, with a blend of data, information technology, and business courses. The career opportunities for the graduates from the programs are expected to be extensive.
