  • Overview

    The Department of Economics offers a Bachelor’s of Business Administration (BBA) in Data Intelligence and Business Analytics with a major in Economics. Modern businesses have extensive need for new data experts who can collect, manage, and analyze the vast amounts of information that is produced as part of an increasingly heterogeneous and integrated network of social and business interactions. Businesses collect data from transactions or existing supply relationships, social media engagement and website usage. Smaller businesses that previously did not collect data now collect data and develop strategies to increase efficiency, reduce waste, and increase their customer base. As a consequence, there is a significantly greater volume of data being produced relative to the qualified professionals who can manage, analyze, and interpret it. According to Glassdoor 2019 the pay scale for a business analyst annual salary is $52,000 to $83,000 listed at Glassdoor.com depending on the job.

    Details

    • Total tuition costs and fees may vary, depending on the instructional method of the courses in which the student chooses to enroll.
    • The more courses a student takes in a single term, the more they will typically save in fees and total cost.
    • Face-to-face or partially online courses are charged at the general tuition rate and all mandatory campus fees, based on the student's residency (non-residents are charged at a higher rate).
    • Fully or entirely online course tuition rates and fees my vary depending on the program. Students enrolled in exclusively online courses do not pay non-Resident rates.
    • Together this means that GA residents pay about the same if they take all face-to-face or partially online courses as they do if they take only fully online courses exclusively; while non-residents save money by taking fully online courses.
    • One word of caution: If a student takes a combination of face-to-face and online courses in a single term, he/she will pay both all mandatory campus fees and the higher eTuition rate.
