The Data Analytics Lab within the College of Business and Technology has been founded. The Data Analytics Lab will have four primary missions to support teaching and research.

  1. Complement existing undergraduate and graduate analytics courses; e.g., Business Intelligence and Analytics, Sports Data Analytics, and Web Analytics.

  3. Provide a research platform for the department and college to generate high impact research. Data collection, tools and expertise to find new data insights.
