The 27 members of the latest cohort of master’s students in business analytics were shown the ropes at their orientation in August. The high ropes, that is, of Recreational Sports’ Venture Out Challenge Course on campus. The students represent a diverse group, holding previous degrees in environmental health, fashion merchandising and design, human development, molecular biology, music, public and urban affairs, and sociology, and in a range of business and engineering disciplines. The master’s program is run by Pamplin’s Center for Business Intelligence and Analytics.
