Undergraduate Program (BSBA)

Business Analytics

You're not afraid of numbers — and you're not afraid of what they mean, either. You can interpret them, and make informed and ethical decisions based on the data. You're interested in the insights, and you'll learn to predict what customers want, which you can then use to predict what your company needs to produce, stock, or discontinue. And with all the professional partnerships we have at Xavier, you just might land the job of your dreams!
