The Drake Data Analytics program is anchored to two objectives:
Professional preparation is also an important part of the major. Drake is forging partnerships with businesses and organizations in the Greater Des Moines area for student internship opportunities. Students will learn by applying principles of data analytics to topics they find personally fulfilling, be it biology, marketing, actuarial science, computer science, economics, finance, or other fields.
Students will also be challenged to complete both a major-specific case studies course and a disciplinary capstone in a chosen area of specialty.
