Why Choose the Quantitative Business Analysis Minor?
Today, more than ever, those who can make sense of data enjoy a competitive edge over those who cannot. Perhaps you will work in production, marketing, or quality management. Perhaps you will work in a health care delivery system, the automotive industry, or some high tech research firm. Perhaps you will forge your own business. The quantitative business analysis minor offers you a chance to develop this competitive edge – the practical know-how of collecting, analyzing, interpreting, and presenting data.
The minor requires 18 semester credit hours, consisting of four required courses and two elective courses. The required courses offer you a background in statistical, quality, and quantitative techniques. The elective courses offer you an opportunity to apply these methods to your area of interest.
