Data Analytics Certificate of Achievement provides students with a foundation in data analysis, in which students will model, synthesize, and present large data sets for business decision making. Courses will focus on the techniques and tools to extract data from various data sources, model, integrate data, and visualize data for organizational decision making and intelligence gathering. The program prepares students for entry-level jobs, or to help them advance into careers, such as Operation Data Analyst, Business Analytics Specialist, System Data Analyst, Data Visualization Developer, Test Data Analyst, and Market Research Analyst. Topics covered will include statistics, research methods, SQL queries, systems analysis, design, and applied predictive analytics.
It is expected to have 50-100 students by Spring 2023.
