As individuals and in teams, you learn by doing.
Enhance your skills by completing a comprehensive project using real-world data to solve complex business problems. In your final semester, you will work on a capstone project with an emphasis on using data to drive the decision-making process through the use of analytical techniques and storytelling.
Take your skills to the next level by preparing for recognized credentials. Industry certifications highlight an overall mastery of a specific role and are a great way for employers to identify the most highly qualified candidates for jobs and projects. While a “good” analytics professional will develop a proficiency in one tool or platform, a “great” analytics professional can apply core methodologies across a variety of industry standard tools.
