Quantitative Business Analysis Major, BBA (NYC)

Bachelor of Business Administration

The Quantitative Business Analysis major (QBA) provides mathematically talented students with cutting-edge, hands-on training in analytical tools and business decision modeling that are in high demand by employers today. 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. An important part if the QBA major is the career concentration in a business function, such as finance or marketing. This offers students sufficient flexibility to build a minor or a second major.

Requirements

University Core (61 Credits)

Lubin majors are required to complete the Foundation Requirements  including MAT 104, and CIS 101 or TS 105. The four courses (14 credits) required as part of the Lubin Foundation Requirement in Quantitative Reasoning are applied to the University Core Areas of Knowledge (AOK) requirement as an In-depth Sequence in Quantitative Reasoning, and MAT 117 satisfies one course in AOK- HSN (AOK5). Therefore, Lubin majors are required to complete only one course from each of the four Areas of Knowledge. QBA majors take additional courses in mathematics which increases the total number of credits required in the University Core to 61 credits for most students.
