Data Analytics Certificate
According to The McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), the leading research company in data analytics, by the year 2018 there will be a shortage of people with analytical expertise in Data Analytics also known as “Big Data”: Organizations of all types are struggling to keep pace with the accelerating growth in data and the need to transform the data into information for decision making. Many organizations lack the personnel with the skills to compete on data based decisions.
A team of Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) from banking, energy, insurance, accounting and healthcare industries, worked with the Wescoe School to design and develop Wescoe's new Data Analytics Certificate curriculum based on the need to compete in a data-driven world.
Our new blended learning format (combining online digital media with traditional classroom methods) allows students to complete two courses per semester by coming to campus just one night per week, with the remainder of the instruction provided online. The certificate can be completed in one year.
