Business Analytics is where data and decision making meet.
Data represents a potential gold mine of information--one that can give businesses a competitive advantage if they can master the art of gathering it, managing it, analyzing it, and using it to make better business decisions.
In the last few years, we have seen an explosion in the amount of data companies have access to and new tools to manage these vast stores of data. Those who have expertise in data analytics and who are naturally curious can have a huge impact on a business, driving important decisions that improve operations, or identify future opportunities that could spark new growth.
The rise of big data has led to growth in Business Analytics careers.
