OPENING DOORS FOR THE AMBITIOUS

Loras College is dedicated to providing the educational opportunities that prepare individuals to be top performers in both traditional and cutting-edge fields.

This commitment has led to the development of our Center for Business Analytics, the region’s leading institution focused on professional and organizational enhancement through the use of data science and analytic techniques. The intention of our center is to provide a  teaching and research center for data informed responsible decision making for achieving organizational goals, with specific focus on the following sectors:

  • Supply Chain Management / Manufacturing
  • Health Care
  • Finance & Insurance
  • Sports Analytics
  • The “Data Poor” underserved populations for which data is not systematically collected or utilized

The Center will collect, assemble, document and distribute data sets for educational use and students will have the opportunity to become familiar with data relevant to these sectors and faculty will be able to use it extensively in their classrooms and students will also be provided internship opportunities through both undergraduate and graduate studies.
