Learn to analyze markets and make better business decisions with the Quantitative Analysis of Markets and Organizations (QAMO) program at the University of Utah. In this major, students learn to build economic models using quantitative and statistical analysis techniques. You can then apply these models to real data, connecting economics and business to help your company make production or investment decisions. The QAMO degree is, at its core, an economics degree with an emphasis in business. As such, students will take courses in economterics (using statistics to describe economics), game theory, and business applications of economics. An emphasis in Business Economics & Analytics is automatically built into the QAMO curriculum, giving students a competitive edge on their resumes. Students can also complete an optional emphasis in Finance. Once graduated, you will have analytical and critical thinking skills that are of use in a variety of business careers and allied fields.
The Student Experience
For academic enrichment, consider completing an undergraduate research project or an internship during your time at the U, allowing you to pursue an interest area and gain valuable professional experience. Outside of the classroom, students can network and socialize through a number of honor societies, such as Omicron Delta Epsilon or the Business Scholars Club. If you want to travel and conduct market analysis from an internationalperspective, consider completing a learning abroad program. Students also have the chance to receive one-on-one mentoring and career advice through the SMART Start and Connect U programs, services that connect undergraduates with U alumni and business professionals.
Graduates of the QAMO program can find jobs as analysts in a variety of areas, such as business, management, budgeting, credit, finance, and operations. Students may also wish to use their quantitative analysis careers in other fields, such as business analytics, banking, or risk management. With additional education at the graduate level, students may become actuaries (risk analysts for insurance companies), professors, administrators, or CEOs.
