About Business Analytics and Information Technology

Are you a problem solver who can manage systems effectively? Do you want to help businesses make better decisions using data? Or what about automating operational-level decision-making for your organization?

Business Analytics and Information Technology (BAIT) focuses on three levels of using information which are becoming more strongly intertwined and are essential components of the modern enterprise:

  • Information Technology - developing skills to capture, store, organize, and search your data
  • Data Analysis - discovering and understanding patterns of data
  • Decision Modeling - using data to make better decisions and formulate complex plans of action

Skills taught include relational database design and management, object-oriented computer programming, web server technology, forecasting, large-scale statistical analysis, data mining, decision analysis, optimization modeling, and risk modeling.

Graduates will work in all employment sectors, including consulting, consumer products, financial services, government, health care, information services, retail, technology services, and transportation/logistic. The Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-New Brunswick and the Rutgers Business School: Graduate Programs - Newark/New Brunswick is now offering a joint Bachelor of Science in Business Analytics and Information Technology and Master of Information Technology. Seniors accepted to this dual degree program may take up to six graduate credits, enabling completion of the requirements for both degrees in five years.
