The digital revolution has changed the practice of business. Data to support business decisions (data collected by business systems as well as through the Internet and Social Media such as Facebook and Twitter) are growing exponentially and becoming increasingly difficult to understand and use.
Business Analytics is the broad use of quantitative reasoning skills in business decision making. Business Analytics helps managers to solve complex business problems, improve business performance, anticipate and plan for change while managing and balancing risks. This unit will provide students with the analytical knowledge and skills to explore data to find patterns and relationships in data; assess uncertainty and risk of business decisions; evaluate decisions; and forecast and predict trends.
