Why a Professional Certificate in Business Analytics?

Data has changed the way businesses make decisions and the way business leaders give their companies a competitive edge. The Professional Certificate in Business Analytics can empower graduates with the knowledge, tools, and decision making skills to solve businesses’ most pressing problems while advancing their professional careers in the exciting and fast growing field of data analytics.

The certificate can also be completed in conjunction with other graduate programs, including an MBA, by taking the certificate courses as electives. For those wanting to further enhance their expertise in business analytics, the certificate can also be used as a stepping stone to the M.S. program in business analytics. Though a successful completion of the certificate does not guarantee admission to the M.S. program, admitted students will be able to apply a few of the certificate courses toward the M.S. degree.

The program

The Professional Certificate in Business Analytics is a one-year, five-course interdisciplinary business certificate. All courses are offered in the evenings and/or on Saturdays to accommodate professionals completing the certificate while working full time. Through Cal Poly’s Learn by Doing philosophy, students will tackle case studies, grow through team projects, and master state-of-the-art software tools.
