The Business Analytics minor will meet the growing need for managers who need to make decisions based upon the methods of data analytics. This includes Data Mining and the ability to collect, analyze, and interpret what is commonly referred to as Big Data. The resulting skill set will include the ability to predict consumer behavior using predictive analytics. Emphasis will be on application and interpretation of statistical techniques and business analytics approaches. Students in any of our disciplines would benefit from this curriculum at Northwood University.
A minor is a defined group of courses within a discipline in addition to the required course for the major. Courses fulfilling requirements for this minor can be taken in open elective slots within the majors.
