Center for Business Analytics

An Innovative Solutions Lab

The scope of activities at the Center for Business Analytics can succinctly be captured by the acronym DATA, a useful way to immediately sense the importance of the Center's activities in the "Big Data" economy of today and of the future:

  • Develop analytics capabilities in the College of Business Administration through curriculum development and applied research;
  • Assist businesses, government agencies, and non-profit organizations to improve performance and make data-driven decisions using analytics;
  • Train students and the public modern analytics methods and computation tools through workshops, seminars, and certificate programs;
  • Augment our understanding of modern analytics methods including data visualization, data mining, machine learning, predictive modeling, simulation, and optimization.

The Center works with students, businesses, non-profits, and governments to fulfill the mission and goals of the Center and California State University, Sacramento. Part of the Center’s mission is to assist in achieving the missions of our students and partners in research and education. We are a Lab that provides innovative solutions to our partners’ problems through clever applications of cutting-edge modern analytics.

To support the Center’s outreach and consulting functions, the Center has office space in the College of Business Administration’s outreach center at 304 S Street in downtown Sacramento.
