About the Program
Supply Chain, Information and Analytics is for problem solvers who love to work with data. Agile businesses rely on statistics and data analysis to make informed decisions on everything from client services to vendor management. Data is collected, stored in databases, analyzed and used to create efficiency in operations. Data is now viewed as the most valuable asset a company has. The challenge is turning data into information that guides strategy, customer service, and market analysis. Technical knowledge in management information systems, business analytics, supply chain and operations provides support for every level of management in every business.
You’ve probably heard terms like supply chain, operations efficiency, big data, cloud computing, data mining, data science and digital economy. Learn what they mean, how they work and how they affect businesses. You’ll study a foundation of management courses to understand the different parts of a business. Data analytics - including statistical analysis, data modeling and database management - is stressed in this program. You may choose to dive deeper into one or more of these three areas: Supply Chain and Operations, Management Information Systems or Business Analytics.
Through a data-driven approach graduates are optimizing business performance as Data Analytics Managers, IT consultants, and Logistics Analysts for Accenture, IBM, Deloitte, Microsoft, General Motors and other companies.
Krannert also offers a Master of Science in Business Analytics and Information Management.

The ♦ course is considered critical.
In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major. Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful. These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”.
The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements.
