The business leaders of tomorrow face an exciting challenge. To innovate and prosper, they need to solve problems and make informed decisions. Just as important, they need to manage technology and data.
La Salle’s new program in Business Systems and Analytics prepares students to do both. It prepares them for careers as business intelligence analysts, business applications consultants, data warehousing specialists, and sports analytics managers, to name a few.
Business systems and analytics, which reflects an emerging trend in business information technology, provides students with a practical and theoretical understanding of applying information systems and analytics to enhance effective problem solving and decision making. Business systems and analytics integrates technology and quantitative methods to capture data reliably and create relevant information for decision making that yields strong organizational performance and competitiveness in the global economy.
The application of business analytics is essential in all areas of business, including: human resource management, financial management, consumer behavior, customer relationship management, sales and marketing, risk management, real estate investment, and supply chain management.
