Why Study Data Analytics

Advances in technology, such as smartphones, social networking, and e-commerce, in the past five years have been accompanied by an explosion of data. Some experts estimate that over 90% of the world’s data has been created during this period.

“As the practice of data-driven decision making has proliferated across industries, the demand for graduates with the skills required to derive analytical insights from complex data sources has continued to grow,” said Andrew Borgman, a biostatistician at Spectrum Health. “The Aquinas College Data Analytics Program will provide students with the necessary technical skills and business acumen to tackle today's challenging problems found at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, and business.”

More and more, businesses, government agencies, the healthcare industry, research labs, and many other employers are hiring data analysts to help them make sense of their data.
