Business Analytics Minor

In an era of big data, business analytics is needed to turn information into intelligence and insights to support better decision-making and successful business strategies. Students who choose the minor in business analytics learn to collect and analyze big data, gaining skills that will improve their competitiveness and marketability in any industry or organization.  

Students also receive MOS Excel Expert Certification and learn how to use technology-enabled analytical tools like Tableau, SAP Lumira, R, and Power BI.  

The 20-unit business analytics minor can be added to any major, discipline or track at TU. The total required units for the minor are 21 if students take a 4-unit statistics course, such as MATH 237

All courses that count toward the minor must be completed with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher.
