Business Analytics is the process of converting data into insights.

The specialization in Business Analytics teaches the use of data and models to support decision making in business. Students learn how to model such relationships as the impact of advertising on sales, how historical data predict stock returns, and how changes in task characteristics can influence time to completion. This programme helps prepare students for careers in “economy of tomorrow” industries. They play a vital role in their organizations’ technological direction. In an IT end-user industry, Business Analytics and Optimization (BAO) responsibilities can reside in various corporate functions and departments, such as operations, product development, information systems and finance.
