“I took a class called Behind the Scenes with Chicago Sports Organizations with Professor Andy Clark. Our class met on-site with sports organizations such as the Chicago Bears and the White Sox. It really opened my eyes even further to the world of sports management.”

Analytical and technical skills are growing in importance. We modernized our core business curriculum to emphasize business analytics and emerging technologies to respond to these trends. Providing students with hands-on projects in collaboration with our college’s industry partners helps equip our students with these new skills.

I love teaching Business Analytics. Students are genuinely interested in learning how to use data analysis to evaluate and improve business decisions. They especially enjoy the applied nature of the course – thinking through how they might use real data to offer insights into important business questions across disciplines.
