    Darden faculty created the following concentration to help Second Year students interested in quantitative analysis to develop course plans:

    Market Analytics

    The objectives of this concentration are to equip students with strong analytic skills, expose them to large data sets where they can engage in mining as it relates to customer relationship management, brand marketing, and other processes for building closer relationships with one’s customer base. The concentration is positioned for those students who wish to follow a B2C career with more of a focus on the research, who are looking at careers in consulting, business development, or other areas where analytic skills are highly valued. Faculty Contact: Raj Venkatesan.

    Business Analytics

    This business analytics concentration will prepare students to participate in organizations that make abundant use of data/quantitative/mathematical techniques as part of their business processes. It is a more general version of the “Market Analytics” concentration in that the areas of application are more than marketing. We expect completion of this concentration to be a useful signal to potential employers of the analytic and quantitative abilities of the student. Faculty Contact: Robert Carraway.
