Business Intelligence Graduate Certificate
The Graduate Certificate in Business intelligence (BI) prepares students to support better business decision-making by providing internal data and external data in a useful and usable format. Using BI, decision makers are able to examine the value of business processes and products while watching for competitive opportunities in the marketplace. BI technologies provide historical, descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive views of business operations. The BI Certificate blends analytics and information technology in a unique program during which students work on industry datasets and learn to appreciate the difficulties of large-scale, unstructured data as well as the need for nuanced solutions.
