The Bachelor of Science in Business Data Analytics (BDA) major is only open to students at the Hartford, Stamford, and Waterbury regional campuses. The objective of the BDA major is to provide a business degree with a special emphasis in the application of information technology to data analytics. An advisor approved focus is also possible based on the availability of courses.
Bachelor of Science Requirements
BDA majors are required to achieve a cumulative 2.0 grade point average for the total of all Operations and Information Management (OPIM) courses for which they have been registered at the University of Connecticut, excluding grades and credits for independent studies and field study internships.
In addition to the School of Business residence requirements for all majors, a BDA major must complete OPIM 3505, 3510, and 3511 in residence at the University of Connecticut. Education Abroad courses may not be used to meet this requirement. For students admitted to graduate-level courses, OPIM 5604 completed in residence at the University of Connecticut may be used in place of OPIM 3511.
Required Major Courses
In addition to the courses outlined in the Common Body of Knowledge and Capstone Requirements, BDA majors must take: OPIM 3505, 3510, 3511; and three 3-credit 3000-4000 level School of Business electives. For students admitted to graduate-level courses, OPIM 5604 may be used in place of OPIM 3511, but credit is not given for both to satisfy the major requirements; OPIM 5270 and/or OPIM 5603 may be used to fulfill elective credit. A maximum of six credits may be used from graduate level courses
