Required Courses

Careers

Analyzing big data to improve decision making is one of the top priorities of many organizations, including those in the healthcare industry. With federal mandates for health insurance and electronic health records, voluminous clinical, operational and reimbursement information is now in a form more amenable to be used for clinical research and business decisions. However, there is a shortage of healthcare data analysts, given the multidisciplinary nature of health analytics that requires business and healthcare knowledge and technical know-how.

In addition, the Scott College of Business is accredited by the AACSB International.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

Students have many sources of financial support for their studies, including financial aid, work-study programs, veterans' benefits, and special scholarships for entering freshmen and transfer students.
