LeBow students are uniquely positioned to address descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, prescriptive and pre-emptive questions across the business analytics lifecycle from the corporate generation of data through the application and impact on managerial and leadership decision-making and innovation. Ranked second in a Computerworld survey on the most difficult skills to find, Business Analytics expertise is not only scarce, but in demand. McKinsey Global Institute reports that the United States could face a shortage of between 140,000 and 190,000 individuals who possess Business Analytics skills and an additional 1.5 million managers with the skills to implement the results. Example business analytics jobs include, BA Strategy Consultants, Business Intelligence and Performance Management Consultants, Advanced Analytics, Optimization Consultants. Because students in this co-major are required to choose a major in one of the functional areas of business, the curriculum enables students to tailor the program to their interests and anticipated career path. Students complete the business analytics co-major in conjunction with one of the following majors: Accounting International Business Finance Legal Studies Management Information Systems Marketing Operations and Supply Chain Management An additional distinguishing feature of the business analytics co-major is the required senior project (BUSN 460) where students work in small teams on real business analytics projects from LeBow College’s corporate partners. The projects require students to bring together all the key elements of the business analytics curriculum to derive business insights for a company’s current business challenges. Experiencing this data driven decision-making process is invaluable career preparation.
