Business Acumen


Data is a fantastic resource, but what is big data analytics good for if it can’t inform strategic business and marketing decisions? You’ll learn how to leverage data science in ways that help take your organization—and your career—to the next level.

Technology is everywhere, and the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming even more prevalent. Through this program, you’ll learn coding skills that take your analytical models to the next level with simulations, trials, hypothetical situations, and more.

Statistics and Mathematics


Numbers rule the business world, so you must start with a foundational understanding of how they are used in a business setting. Then, you’ll explore business statistics, calculus, and more.

Data Command


Where do you start when you’re faced with a massive amount of data? Data command helps you answer that question. You’ll learn how to clean, validate, source, and identify data so you can use it to its full potential.



Data is a powerful tool, and with power comes responsibility. You’ll explore real-life scenarios where you’ll face ethical questions to learn the best action regarding sensitive data, consumer privacy, and more.
