While other universities offer information technology as a major to students, Saint Joseph's University structured the Business Intelligence Analytics major from Saint Joseph's University to educate students about more than just technology.

Learning outcomes

The great thing about this area of study is that it's not industry-specific. Saint Joseph's business intelligence alumni work in a variety of fields engaged in interesting research for their organizations. For example, some monitor blogs, social media and newspaper articles to present their companies with critical information about consumer sentiment. Another alum works for the military and uses business intelligence software to identify and avoid potential threats. Others use the software to track census data and make decisions on where to build new franchises.
