DRAKE UNIVERSITY


TRANSFER PATHWAYS GUIDE: DATA ANALYTICS (BSBA)
Data Analytics is a joint program of the College of Business & Public Administration and the College of Arts & Sciences designed to develop analysts who can work with data to uncover practical insights and support sound and ethical decision-making. The foundation of the program is a core of computer science and statistics classes that build problem-solving skills.


Data Analytics is also available as a major within the College of Arts & Sciences. The key difference between the majors is that CBPA students complete the business core, whereas Arts & Sciences students do not.

Students are not required to take any or all of these courses in order to transfer to Drake but may use this as a guide to take applicable coursework for this degree program.


Business Core
Students study a common core of courses as well as a selected major in one or more areas of study. The following courses are required of all business majors at Drake and can be completed while at DMACC or after transfer to Drake.

Either ENG 106 or 108 will fulfill the business writing requirement; students do not need to take both.

Either CSC 116 or BCA 212 will fulfill the IS 044 requirement; students do not need to take both.
