Part-time, in-class or online study tailored for:

  • business analysts
  • content developers

In its lat­est Future of Jobs Report, the World Eco­nom­ic Forum iden­ti­fied big data ana­lyt­ics as the top tech­nol­o­gy adop­tion trend for orga­ni­za­tions in North America.

Orga­ni­za­tions gen­er­ate a wealth of data through their every­day oper­a­tions. Min­ing through that data to extract mean­ing­ful infor­ma­tion can be a daunt­ing task if you don’t have the exper­tise or the right tools to do it. That’s what ana­lyt­ics is about: chang­ing data into knowl­edge and turn­ing knowl­edge into action.

This series is designed for mid-lev­el man­age­ment who are devel­op­ing and imple­ment­ing new busi­ness ana­lyt­ics with­in their orga­ni­za­tion. Stu­dents may come from a wide range of employ­ment sec­tors, includ­ing pri­vate, gov­ern­men­tal, and edu­ca­tion­al organizations.

In the Ana­lyt­ics for Busi­ness series, you will acquire an over­all under­stand­ing of ana­lyt­ics and how you can apply it to improve deci­sion-mak­ing with­in your orga­ni­za­tion. Through a set of three work­shops, you will exam­ine the key con­cepts and the unique skills required to devel­op and exe­cute strate­gies in busi­ness analytics.


No prerequisites or entrance requirements.
