Business Analytics Graduate Certificate Program

 In the current age of big data, organizations increasingly have access to large streams of data that they seek to extract value from. Employees with the skills to process, analyze, and convert data into meaningful strategic insights are becoming highly valued in organizations seeking to be more data-driven.

The Business Analytics graduate certificate will teach the skills and knowledge to be able to develop the necessary data-driven analytic frameworks and models to determine the optimal decisions at strategic, tactical and operational levels for organizations. Upon completion, students will understand the latest data analytic methods and predictive modeling tools and be able to convert raw business data into meaningful conclusions that can be used to enhance competitive success in an increasingly competitive environment.

Courses in the graduate certificate are drawn from the Engineering and Technology Management master’s degree at Mines and can be applied toward that degree (with a 3.0 final grade).
