B.S. in Business Analytics
Organizations are generating volumes of data. This data could be used to solve problems, generate insight, mitigate risk, identify superior products, etc. if it were properly analyzed. The Bachelor of Science in Business Analytics (BSBA) is grounded in the concepts of Evidence-Based Management and seeks to provide data-driven answers to today's organizational questions. Students will learn how to source, manipulate, and analyze data as well as generate insightful results all within an ethical framework. These results will include infographics, visualizations, and executive reports suitable for a business audience. In addition, students will learn the hands-on skills needed to use popular analytics software platforms and manage large volumes of data and report out those results in impactful ways using aviation and aerospace examples and case studies. The goal of this degree is to enable to the student to look through a business lens, generate new insights with data, and influence key business decisions.
Business Analytics students who wish to continue on to a master's degree may enroll in the BSBA to MSM, MSMIS, MSISA 4+1 program as outlined in this program.

BSBA to MSM, MSMIS, MSISA 4+1 Program, A Unique Opportunity
The BSBA - MSM, MSMIS, MSISA 4+1 program is for exceptional students who are committed to continuing their education through the master's degree. This fast-paced program allows qualifying students the opportunity to complete both the Bachelor of Science in Business Analytics and the Master of Science in Management (MSM), Master of Science in Management Information Systems (MSMIS), or Master of Science in Information Security and Assurance (MSISA) degree programs in five academic years.
Students who are accepted in the 4 + 1 program, spend three academic years in undergraduate-level study and then, during their senior year, will take up to three graduate-level courses that will meet the undergraduate requirements and graduate program core requirements (when a B grade or better is achieved). Upon completion of the BSBA requirements, students will be enrolled in graduate school and can complete their degree in one year. In any graduate course taken by an undergraduate student, a grade of B or better must be earned. If a grade of C or F is earned in any of the graduate courses taken in lieu of the undergraduate courses, the student will be removed from the program, have credit awarded to the BSBA degree only, and may continue to complete the BSBA degree.
Students initiate program acceptance through their Academic Advisor or Campus Advisor; to help ensure program criteria are met. Student Advisor will complete the request for processing into the 4+1 program.
