Business Analytics is a highly practical, immediately applicable major, which combines business knowledge (i.e. economics, management and marketing) with the use of the latest technologies, processes and applications such as Microsoft Business Intelligence suite. The program exposes students to the skills needed to improve business decision making through data analysis. There is a strong emphasis on strengthening the student’s oral and written communication skills, as well as critical thinking and problem-solving. Students have the opportunity to complete internships to gain hands-on, real-world business experience.
Business Mission Statement
The mission of the Business Department is to support the mission of the College by providing quality programs, delivering a curriculum that is current and relevant, and affording opportunities for professional growth for faculty and staff. The faculty in the disciplines within the department maintains close contact with practitioners to ensure the curriculum meets the demands of area employers with the help of the advisory committee. Each discipline maintains contacts with adjunct faculty who are often employed within their own area of specialization. All faculty members are involved in professional development activities and are constantly looking for new and innovative ideas to incorporate into their instructional delivery.
It is the expressed goal of the division to provide student-centered learning approaches that encourage logical thinking and creative techniques for problem-solving while promoting personal initiative, responsibility, perseverance, and respect for others.
