Analytics certificate online

The ability to analyze the immense amounts of data made possible via cloud computing can set you apart from other management professionals. Northwestern's online analytics certificate program prepares you to apply the science of data analysis to the modern phenomenon of “big data,” that is, data whose scale and complexity offers vast challenges—and opportunities.

An analytics certificate is a useful credential for professionals with strengths in math, statistics or information technology who want to open new career paths by specializing in large-scale data management. Northwestern's 6-course program, offered entirely online, is designed to be completed in 12 months (3 semesters). Financial aid is available for students taking at least 6 credits per semester.
