Today’s technology-driven world is awash with data—and those that learn to collect, analyze and understand that data will drive the businesses of the future.
Data Science (with a minor in Business Administration) is an innovative program that integrates computer skills and mathematical theory with practical applications in economics, finance and general business.
You’ll learn a range of skills and theories in business, mathematics and statistics and computer science, deep learning, machine learning, data analysis, automation, preparing you for a wide variety of jobs in business, finance, energy and telecommunications.
If you complete the Data Science bachelor’s degree program with a minor in Business Administration, you’ll gain access to Maryville’s accelerated master’s option to earn your master’s in Data Science.
