How does a large bank differentiate its customers based on credit risk, usage and other important factors, and then target these customers with highly focused offerings? How does a winery quantitatively analyze the appeal of its wines and try to make them better? How do large consumer-goods conglomerates use point-of-sales information to optimize their inventory and save billions of dollars? How do major sports franchises decide on game strategy?

Why earn a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Applied Analytics?

With the guidance and combined expertise of UNT’s professors in Business, Economics, Mathematics and other departments, you could increase your value in the workforce as you engage in a wide variety of courses related to analytics. Even public agencies and academic institutions — almost any type of large organization — need well-trained professionals who know how to efficiently collect, analyze, interpret and present data. Applied Analytics focuses on the practical application of advanced techniques to data rather than on developing theoretical expertise.

With the approval of the program coordinator and cooperating departments, you will select classes from Business Analytics (Decision Science), Economics, and an additional related area of interest, such as Educational Psychology, Mathematics, Merchandising, Engineering Systems, Engineering Management or Political Science. Knowledge of at least one foreign language or an acceptable equivalent is required for the Master of Arts degree, but not for the Master of Science.
