Business Administration + Quantitative Sciences Major
Students must be admitted to the BBA program in order to earn the BBA/QSS secondary major.
The Institute for Quantitative Theory and Methods (QTM) in Emory College and the Bachelor of Business Administration program in the Goizueta Business school offer a BBA with a secondary major in QSS. The program starts Fall 2018. Students are required to complete the BBA program PLUS a secondary QSS major. The secondary major consists of the requisite QTM coursework and 4 additional BUS courses.
This partnership couples the rigor of the BBA program with a second major in Quantitative Sciences. The purpose of this degree program is to enhance the quantitative and analytic preparation of students choosing to study business at Emory. As the functional fields of business including marketing analytics, strategy and management consulting, decision analysis/operations and finance, are increasingly driven by data and quantitative analysis, it is imperative that BBA students are sufficiently prepared in quantitative methods. It is also suitable for those interested in graduate training in business.

The secondary Quantitative Sciences major combines intensive quantitative training with additional BUS courses. The purpose of this degree program is to enhance the quantitative and analytic preparation of students choosing to study business at Emory.
It is different in that BBA students who wish to pursue a secondary major now have the option to do so with a BUS track, instead of the traditional tracks offered in Quantitative Sciences.
The BBA + secondary QSS major is a rigorous course of study that requires early and careful planning if you wish to graduate in eight semesters (four years).
