BUS 202 - Fundamentals of Business Analytics


Credits: 3


Business analytics allows for the conversion of raw data into actionable real-world insights. We’ll build a foundation of knowledge in the fundamentals of statistics and data science using business data to formulate key metrics. We’ll use a programming language to summarize and visualize data, interpret patterns, infer population parameters, explore relationships among variables, and make forecasts. No prior programming experience is expected.

BUS 202 will count towards the statistics requirement of both the business administration and accounting majors (currently also satisfied by POL/INTR 202, ECON 202, MATH 118, etc.). It will also count towards the statistics requirement of the Data Science minor. As is the case with POL/INTR 202, etc., BUS 202 serves as a pre- or co-requisite for FIN 221. Due to contact overlap, students may take only one of the following courses for degree credit: BUS 202, POL/INTR 202, ECON 202, MATH 118. Students who have already taken CBSC 250 should not take any of these other courses.
