Curriculum Overview


There’s little surprise that organizations are taking data seriously. In the quest to become more effective and efficient, companies have increased their focus on key business metrics that inform strategy and predict success. Terms like “predictive analytics” and “big data” have become buzz-worthy in virtually every industry.

Earning a data analytics certificate can give you the skills to organize, visualize, predict, and store data. In as little as four months, you can accelerate your career and develop a skill set that is in demand across fields like health care, finance, manufacturing, and technology. It’s hard to imagine an industry where data isn’t a major concern.

Boost your career with a flexible data analytics certificate. You can earn it in a matter of seven months, and if you decide you’d like to earn a master’s degree, you can seamlessly transfer the credits from your data analytics certificate to the Master of Science in Data Analytics.
