BUS 365 - Introduction to Business Analytics, 3 credit hours


Prerequisite(s): MTH 121 , CSC 141 , ECN 279  
This course provides an introduction to the field of business analytics, which is defined as the use of data, statistical and quantitative analysis, exploratory and predictive models, and prescriptive analysis to drive corporate decisions and actions.  The course starts off with a discussion of models to summarize, visualize and understand data.  We use that selected data to build a sample of models to make decisions.  The course takes additional steps to build smart models designed to make optimal decisions. The course uses Microsoft Excel Add-ins to expose students to the concepts and use of Data Mining (scuffle thru large amount of data to pull out useful information), and Optimization Models.
