About the Minor


The Data Analytics Interdisciplinary Minor provides integrated course content spanning multiple departments.  Beyond the course work, student experiences enrich their knowledge of the field as well as build connections to folks in the real world.  

Students taking BUS 315 Enterprise Resource Planning Systems visited the market leader's Americas headquarters for an executive briefing and campus tour.

  • BUS 201 - Introduction to Financial Accounting

  • BUS 304 - Management Information Systems
  • MAT 201 - Differential Calculus
  • CSI 201 - Computer Science I
