Advance Your Career in the Developing Industry of Analytics
Applied Business Analytics graduates will gain hands-on experience with a variety of analytical models and decision-support tools—knowledge you can immediately apply on the job to mine the critical information needed to gain an advantage in marketing, operations, product and technology innovations, financial services, human resource management, and many other areas. A recent analysis by PwC predicts that 67 percent of the 2.72 million data science and analytics postings expected by 2020 will be for analytics-enabled leadership roles—chief executive officer, chief data officer, IT director, human resources manager, financial manager, marketing manager, and others who can use data to inform strategy.
Applied Data Analytics degree and concentration graduates will have expertise in concepts and techniques for organizing, cleaning, analyzing, and representing/visualizing large amounts of data, along with knowledge of database systems, data mining tools, data visualization tools and packages, Python packages, R packages, and cloud services. The ability to critically analyze real-world problems will prepare you for the impending “explosion of machine learning roles and continuing growth of data science roles” (LinkedIn 2018 Emerging Jobs Report).
Data Analytics concentration and certificate graduates will be able to find patterns and details in large sets of data through visualization and other mining techniques, and be able to demonstrate a knowledgeable command of applied probability and statistics, web analytics, and metrics—key traits in the data scientist profession, which has topped the list of Glassdoor’s 25 Best Jobs in America from 2016 through 2019.
