  • Business Analytics: Business Analytics (BA) addresses a growing demand for students with skills to extract insights from data and use those insights to make strategic business decisions. Our BA programs have a cross-disciplinary focus on descriptive, prescriptive and predictive analytics. Students who pursue coursework in BA will develop a skill set that positions them to work in interdisciplinary teams to solve complex business problems.
  • Management Information Systems: Management Information Systems (MIS) addresses issues related to the development and use of information technology (IT) in business. MIS is a cross-disciplinary field that focuses on how IT can be used strategically both within (across functional areas) and across organizations. Students who pursue a degree in MIS will be uniquely positioned to address specific questions associated with the management, development and use of IT in business.
  • Supply Chain Management: Supply Chain Management (SCM) addresses how goods, information, and money flow end-to-end in the supply chain. The department offers coursework that provides students with a foundation in supply chain operations and business strategy. Students who pursue coursework in SCM will develop skills to address issues with the coordination and optimization of supply chains in business-to-business settings.
