Unlock the World of Big Data
The Business Data Science Graduate Certificate, offered by the John Chambers College of Business and Economics, focuses on advanced analytical methods and visualizations to help you make the most of your data and communicate your findings. Data science uses scientific methods to extract information from data, unifying statistics with machine learning and information technology to unlock insights otherwise impossible to discover. Analysts fluent in advanced statistical analysis, data mining, and data collection techniques can find the right data to support missions with the right insights, information, and knowledge. If you’re equally interested in applications and the infrastructure and theory underpinning the world of data, this might just be for you.
The Business Data Science Graduate Certificate requires 12 hours of course work taken over the span of one and one-half semesters.
The coursework unifies statistics, machine learning and information technology to make discoveries otherwise out of sight. The methods emphasized in this certificate are capable of discovering hard-to-find trends in large, population-sized data sets.
Upon completion of this certificate, students will be able to:
- Organize and securely retrieve data from data warehousing infrastructure.
- Perform advanced predictive analytic techniques using statistical software and communicate their results.
- Deploy machine learning for mining big data.
