What is Business Analytics?

Business analytics is one of the fastest growing fields in business, offering some of the best salaries and job opportunities. It enables businesses to grow without needing increased capital investment.

The goal of business analytics is to help managers achieve better business performance by

  1. Asking the right questions.
  2. Answering these questions with appropriate data, not conventional thinking.
  3. Communicating these insights in a way that everyone can understand.

Business analysts have the best of both worlds— the knowledge to work effectively in a business environment and the analytic skills to solve business problems. These analytic skills encompass three overlapping areas: data mining, process optimization, and applied statistics.

UT’s College of Business Administration was the first business school in the nation to offer undergraduate and graduate business analytics programs.

What skills will I learn?

Business analytics is not about sitting in an office and crunching numbers. The field is interesting and dynamic. In the undergraduate business analytics program, you will acquire

  • broad business training to understand the context in which business analytics is applied.
  • the analytics skills to apply predictive modeling and design of experiments, the “hammer and screwdriver” of business analytics.
  • the opportunities to prepare for industry certifications, such as SAS and Google, which creates even greater entry-level job opportunities.

To enhance the value of your educational opportunities, you can combine your business analytics degree with other disciplines, such as logistics and marketing, offered in the College of Business Administration!
