Business Analytics, BSBA

Return to College of Business Administration Return to: College of Business Administration

Over a period of just four years, the existing 15 credit Business Analytics Certificate has grown to be the most popular certificate of the college; 15% of spring 2021 graduates earned it. The major proposed here takes the existing required courses of the certificate and adds one more to create an 18 credit major.

The Katz/CBA faculty developed and approved the 18-credit undergraduate Business Analytics major. The proposed 18-credit program would build upon the emphasis on business analytics in the recent curriculum changes recommended by the Undergraduate Programs Committee (UPC) and adopted by the faculty of Katz/CBA.

The foundation for the proposed Business Analytics major is provided by the three the new business analytics courses required of all Pitt Business undergraduate students as a result of the 2021 curriculum revision that was adopted by the Katz/CBA faculty. These courses are part of the business core, a set of courses required of all BSBA students, regardless of major.

Required Courses

The three new, required, foundation courses approved by the faculty are:

Students pursuing the Business Analytics major would take five additional required courses and one elective. The five required courses for the proposed Business Analytics major are:

Elective Options

The three-credit elective requirement will be fulfilled by taking courses from the set of existing courses across business areas, e.g., finance, marketing, supply chain (and from outside business if enrollment capacities allow) that have been reviewed for their analytics focus and have been approved by the faculty for fulfilling this requirement.

Total Credits for Major: 27

Total Credits for Degree: 120
