Learn to analyze and visualize data to support data-driven decision-making in your organization.
Our Specialized Certificate in Business Intelligence Analysis provides you with the skills to begin a career in business intelligence, transition from your current position into a BI analyst position, or add data analysis skills to your existing skillset.
As the amount of data companies collect continues to grow at a rapid rate, the ability to effectively transform that data into actionable information has become paramount for business growth and success. The expanding field of business intelligence (BI) is now fundamental to all facets of business across all industries. Business intelligence analysts support data-driven organizational decision-making and maximize the utility of accumulated data. Businesses also use BI analysts to determine how to improve processes, discover efficiencies, support customers, and reduce costs.
In this hands-on certificate, you will gain a comprehensive, working knowledge of the complete analytics cycle, from determining requirements to extracting and disseminating information through various visualization techniques. Advanced topics such as predictive analytics, SAS programming, R programming, Python, or SQL can be taken as electives for further specialization.
