BS in Data Analytics The Ohio State University




Course info


Data analytics applies fundamental scientific principles to the analysis of large, complex data sets. This rapidly growing field needs practitioners with expertise that cuts across core disciplines of computer science, mathematics and statistics and with highly developed critical-thinking, problem-solving and communication skills.

Data analytics includes the set of skills necessary to identify how to manage represent and manipulate large and complex data stores; how to abstract, model and effectively analyze such data; and how to create quantitative visual cues to help explain and make informed decisions from those data. By making sense of a vast information landscape, data analytics has the potential to—and is already starting to—transform the way we understand and interact with the world.

A student graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in data analytics will demonstrate: An understanding of and ability to apply computer science principles relating to data representation, retrieval, programming and analysis of big data, an understanding of and ability to apply statistical methods, models and concepts to data analysis and to draw conclusions supported by data, critical thinking skills associated with problem identification, problem solving and decision making, the ability to apply knowledge gained from one area to problems and data in another, the ability to communicate findings and their implications and to apply them effectively in organizational settings.

Possible careers

Although it is a relatively new field, data science and analytics has been described by the Harvard Business Review as the “sexiest job of the 21st century.” A major in data analytics will prepare students to work in a wide range of fields. Companies both locally and nationally are actively recruiting employees who have core and specialized skills in data analytics.

Career prospects in data analytics are very promising. A broad analysis of labor statistics, census data and economic indicators by McKinsey & Company has shown that data analysis is now an integral business function and important factor for production in nearly every segment of the economy and that there will be a large shortage of prospective employees with data-analytic skills in the near term.
