Topics include the advantages of using database management systems, the proper design and implementation of a database, accessing and manipulating data using Structured Query Language (SQL), and the role of a database administrator. Prerequisite: MIS 2140

MTH 4100 DATA MINING AND MODELING FOR BUSINESS DECISIONS (3 credits) In this course students will apply quantitative methods such as linear, logistic, and multiple regression; time series forecasting, find optimal solution for goals, use decision trees, and apply simulation to business problems. Prerequisites: MIS 1500 and MTH 2310

MTH 4200 PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS (3 credits) Students will apply the concepts, principles and analysis skills of Data Mining to build predictive models. This course will require the planning, implementation, and evaluation of a solution to a business case problem. Prerequisites: MIS 1500 and MTH 2310

AMM 3050 CATEGORY MANAGEMENT (3 credits) Project-based, cross-disciplinary course focusing on the application of general business concepts taught using an experiential model. Problem-solving and situation/scenario analysis will be explored utilizing industry case studies and real-world situations. Students will learn and experience making fact-based decisions using industry data and tools. Prerequisites: MIS 1050 or 1500, MTH 2310 and MKT 2080

MIS 3300 PROJECT MANAGEMENT (3 credits) Students will examine the significant role that project management plays in the successful completion of an information technology project. The skills, tools, and best practices used to effectively manage a project from its inception to successful closure will be discussed. Students will learn how to control the scope, time, cost, and quality of projects, and gain hands-on experience using project management software. Prerequisite: MIS 1500

OPS 2350 STATISTICS FOR QUALITY ENGINEERING (3 credits) This course applies the concepts of Statistics to the quality management functions within an organization.
