Statistics
A key challenge now facing managers is the interpretation of the vast amount of data generated by computing systems. As these data do not directly answer important business questions, data analysis and statistics must be used to interpret them. Statistics courses develop the skills and insights required to make effective use of quantitative methods. They provide the knowledge needed to select and apply techniques and to communicate statistical results. Interpretation in realistic applications offers guiding examples; theory is used to
generate and compare alternative schemes. All courses provide skills that augment substantive managerial abilities, along with exposure to computer software that implements key techniques.

Transportation
(Individualized)
The transportation concentration acquaints students with the total distribution process of goods: location of source materials, production and distribution facilities, and inventory of raw materials and final products. Courses also address issues related to passenger transportation. The concentration examines the different modes of transportation and methods of forecasting transportation needs. Students with this background have been offered positions with transportation providers, shippers and receivers of goods, and public organizations.
