The minor in Data Analytics is intended to arm students from any college and major with the tools and skills to answer data-driven questions relevant to their field. To meet this goal, required courses will cover the five pillars of business analytics - Data Collection, Data Preparation, Data Modeling, Data Visualization and Analysis, and Reporting - both in theory and practice using cutting-edge software. Electives tailor to students from a variety of majors and allow students to build their own “concentration”.
One of the following courses:
- MNGT 368 - Business Statistics
- MATH 275 - Applied And Computational Statistics
- MATH 305 - Probability and Statistics
- ECON 220 - Business And Economics Statistics I

|Engaged Learning Experiences|
Students must complete, at Northeastern, three courses designated as Engaged Learning Experiences courses. One of the Engaged Learning Experiences courses must be at the 300-level, and one Engaged Learning Experiences course must be designated as "Boundary Crossing".
Discipline Specific (ELE-DS)
These courses have pre-requisites that are specific courses within a program of study. Discipline Specific courses give students a deeper understanding of how knowledge is created and applied in their field.
Boundary Crossing (ELE-X)
These are courses that cross disciplinary boundaries and/or cross boundaries through engagements outside the classroom or University allowing students to see how knowledge gained in one field might inform other fields or other aspects of society.
