The online Data Analytics for Business Professionals certificate is designed to improve the evidence-based decision-making skills of business professionals.
Our classes combine case studies with statistical software tools, training students to make business analytics decisions backed by facts and data. Working with data effectively to drive insights is a necessary skill for every individual who would like to make sound decisions.
Students in the Data Analytics for Business Professionals certificate acquire technical analytics communication skills, enabling them to effectively manage analytics teams, translate analysis into business objectives, and improve their evidence-based decision-making abilities.
Data analytics and data science positions are growing exponentially. Data scientists, data engineers and business analysts are among the most sought-after positions in America, as they can work across a variety of industries and markets.
Data scientists still hold the top spot on Glassdoor’s 50 Best Jobs in America list and it’s not only because of the attractive $100,000 median base salary.
“A definite strength to the Data Analytics certificate is how interactive and practical the courses are. Despite being online, the weekly sync session brings everyone together, and the final team project gives students the opportunity to become confident with the tools while also engaging in the sort of experience that scales very well to real-world job situations.”
