Our Specialized Certificate in Data Mining for Advanced Analytics provides you with the skills to design, build, verify, and test predictive data models to make data-driven decisions in any industry.

Modern databases can contain massive amounts of data. Within this data lies important information that can only be effectively analyzed using data mining. Data mining tools and techniques can predict future trends and behaviors, allowing individuals and organizations to make proactive, knowledge-driven decisions.

Newly updated with additional data sets, a robust practicum course, a survey of popular data mining tools, and additional algorithms, in this program you will use real-life data sets from various industries to complete data mining projects. You will learn to plan and execute all the steps of data preparation, analysis, learning and modeling, and identifying the predictive/descriptive model that produces the best evaluation scores. Targeted elective courses allow you to learn further in-demand techniques, tools, and languages.
