The interdisciplinary QBA major consists of courses in data analysis, information technology, quantitative modeling, and mathematics, providing a foundation for analytical careers such as financial engineering, risk management, actuarial science, market research, and management consulting. Students are required to take additional mathematics courses in calculus and statistics which constitute an In-depth sequence in Mathematics which is applied to the University Core.
