Business Analytics


Business Analytics is a truly interdisciplinary major with applications in all areas of business. Students embarking on this path will develop solid skills in data mining and methods of discovery, all while exploring the role of ethics and the social value associated with big data collection and usage.

Loras College is a leader in analytics, and this program is part of a larger Business Analytics effort that includes an MBA in Analytics, a Certificate in Analytics and the Center for Business Analytics. These programs generate a culture of data science and offer students a glimpse into the diverse opportunities available beyond graduation.

Students will be expected to participate in internships and at the annual Analytics Symposium beyond their classroom activities.
