Business Analytics

Business Anlytics Students

Drexel LeBow’s Business Analytics programs provide a curriculum that covers the entire lifecycle of data analysis. Drexel’s national leadership in experiential learning shapes the curriculum with a focus on the program’s three pillars: statistics, data management, and business modeling.
