Course 15 Majors & Minors
The foundation for business starts here. 15-1 Management gives students a broad exposure to management and business topics. Building upon this base, students then tailor their education towards a deep dive in a specific subject area or an interdisciplinary/cross-disciplinary concentration.
15-2 Business Analytics
Data-based decisions for tough challenges. 15-2 Business Analytics informs the scientific process of using data to make better decisions in business and other domains. By using data analysis, optimization techniques, and modeling tools, students in the field of Business Analytics have the potential to make sense of big data across myriad sectors.
Shape your mind, then shape markets. 15-3 Finance provides a rigorous curriculum designed to train students for careers that focus on the application and management of modern finance tools. Beginning with the fundamentals of finance, accounting, microeconomics, probability, and statistics, students then choose electives based on specific finance interests.
