Keiser University’s Associate of Arts in Business Analytics degree represents the first half of the Bachelor of Arts degree. In a similar fashion to the BA, this program provides students with the foundation and introductory courses in Business Analytics, also known as Business Intelligence. Students are offered a series of introductory integrated business and information technology courses. This program is designed to introduce and provide a foundation for assisting students in analyzing introductory level business issues. Graduates will be able to assist in the collection, analysis, and utilization of business data, as well as contribute to the making of business decisions and communicating with commercial entities.  The focus of this program is on developing students’ business, technological, analytical, and communication skills. During the application components of this program, students work independently, in groups, and with external or third-party entities to further develop the necessary skills needed for a business analyst.

Program Objectives

Left Quote My instructors believed in me. They were more than instructors, they tried to get to know you as a person and tried to understand your goals so they could push you towards them. Student services helped me find a job before I even graduated. Everyone was dedicated to my overall success. Right Quote

Left Quote The instructors at Keiser University impacted my life. They believed in my ability to become a great graphic designer, regardless of how I felt about my skills. KU helped to prepare me for the real world and got me to where I am today. Right Quote

Left Quote Beyond the curriculum of the courses, the lessons the instructors have taught me have paid dividends in my real work experiences. How to respond to criticisms, project and time management, interview skills, the list goes on and on. At the end of the day, they not only showed me how to design, but they taught me how to be a professional. Right Quote
