Designed with working professionals in mind, each certificate includes three to four courses and is delivered entirely online. Individuals with an undergraduate degree can apply credits toward a master’s degree. Those with a master’s degree will earn an additional specialization.
The Business Analytics Certificate spans the full cycle of descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics to optimize business processes in manufacturing, customer relationship management, and supply chain management. Graduates will lead organizations to achieve operational efficiency, anticipate trends in the marketplace, and strengthen their competitive position.
The Operations and Supply Chain Management Certificate provides an in-depth study of network relationship integration, quality and process improvement methods, and project management.
