Helzberg School of Management

The Helzberg School of Management offers two post-baccalaureate certificates: one in Data Science and Business Analytics and one in Data Science and Business Intelligence. The programs examine techniques for predictive and descriptive modeling using concepts that integrate statistics, computer science and business strategy.

These six-course certificate programs help students move beyond Excel and standard SQL reporting, helping them create predictive models and dynamic dashboards. Students will also work with large data sets and mine textual data from social media and websites. All of these technical skills will be delivered with the idea of solving a business problem. Communication of technical models to a non-technical audience will be emphasized in each class.

Curriculum

Each certificate includes a six credit hour core and a six credit hour specialization track totaling 12 credit hours.
