In a data-saturated global marketplace, incisive analytical skills are no longer a “nice to have.” They’re a necessity.
Because nearly every modern business decision is data-driven, the Poole College of Management has integrated data analysis and interpretation skills across our curricula and programs, from undergraduate to executive education. No undergraduate track better exemplifies our approach than the Business Analytics Honors Program, which offers student-focused preparation for careers in the field.

We’re preparing our students to find those insights and make informed decisions for businesses.”
