  3. 3. NEW ACADEMIC PROGRAM: BUSINESS ANALYTICS & INFO SYSTEMS AT U. OF IOWA Big data is now big business and big money, as companies work to translate vast amounts of data into knowledge about their customers and their people, the things they make and how they make it. So big that the Department of Labor projects 25 percent growth in the need for workers trained in analytics through 2018. The University of Iowa’s Tippie College of Business hopes to help meet that demand by establishing one of the first undergraduate business school majors to address big data. The major— Business Analytics and Information Systems(BAIS)—will teach students to manage vast amounts of data, teasing out what secrets it holds, and then use that information to strengthen their business. Business Analytics and Information Systems (BAIS) is one of six Undergraduate Business Majors offered by the Tippie College of Business, which is known for the strength of its academic departments and the community built by its students, faculty, and staff. U.S.News & World Report ranks Iowa's undergraduate business program in the top 25 public universities nationwide.
