Business analytics specialists are in demand across the global market. Data –every company produces it, but not every company is leveraging it. Why? Because many times, companies don’t have the right person to lead the charge. Data alone can’t provide clear-cut recommendations.
That’s where you come in. With a Business Analytics Certificate from Kelley, you’ll learn how to use data to detect trends, predict the most-likely scenarios, and make optimal decisions about everything from daily operations to high-level strategies.
And, if you really want to go the distance, apply up to 12 credits from the certificate to an online MS or MBA degree.
