Big Data. Analytics. Metrics. Modeling. Today, business is a numbers game — and organizations need talented employees with the skills to extract valuable insights from data.

A program you can tailor to your specific needs, the Graduate Certificate in Business Analytics will prepare you to lead your organization by using data to make informed decisions.

Business Analytics Certificate Curriculum

Customize a program of 12-15 credit hours that matches your interests and career goals. Choose from course topics, including:

  • Accounting Information Systems & Data Analysis
  • Development Tools in Business Analytics
  • Applied Analytics
  • Applied Marketing Analytics
  • Data Visualization
  • Operations Analysis Models
  • Predictive Analytics

To prepare for this program, some students may be required to take a foundation course on quantitative analysis and participate in a Microsoft Excel boot camp.

Schedule and Class Participation

Classes meet on weeknight evenings and students choose how to participate with three options for attending classes: in-person, in real-time online or by watching a recording. All three options can be utilized throughout the program based on the most convenient option for your schedule. This format enables you to balance a busy schedule and earn a credential in less time than a traditional MBA or other master's program.

Stackable Certificates

If you're interested in earning your MBA but don't have the time to commit to a full program, our stackable certificates allow you to earn credits toward an MBA degree and earn micro-credentials along the way.
