Information technology advances in online systems, mobile and sensor-based systems, cloud computing, AI and machine learning, are creating a wealth of data and driving organizations towards data-driven decision-making. The Graduate Business Analytics Certificate Program at the Cox School of Business is designed to help you leverage the terabytes of data that bombard your organization to drive efficiency, maximize your technology investment and strengthen your customer relationships.  In a knowledge-intensive economy, success depends on your company’s ability to exploit its available knowledge resources and you can gain those skills with this program.

The program enables managers and analysts to understand how information can be accessed from corporate databases and data warehouses, and used to build analytical models for a broad variety of decision problems. The modeling techniques that are covered range from traditional statistical models and optimization models to new techniques such as data visualization, data mining and machine learning.  The program also addresses the effective implementation of analytics efforts, using methods such as project management and business score-carding. Software tools used in the program are popular enterprise and open-source packages that are widely accessible, so participants can immediately apply their new skills at work.

Given the broad appeal of the program, participants also benefit from peer interactions with other participants. Each cohort typically includes participants from diverse industries, in roles ranging from marketing, financial management, operations and technology management to general management and entrepreneurship.
