Data Science Certificate
Give Your Career a Data Boost
Big Data is real. Bit by bit, a ton of data is collected each day and stored away in huge databases. It’s the kind of information that can make a real difference in the success of organizations around the world—from government agencies to international retailers. But it’s hidden in a sea of numbers, trivia and chaff. Trained professionals are needed to mine, sort, analyze and turn that data into actionable insights leaders can use to make wise decisions for the health and welfare of their entire organizations. If you have a desire to make a real difference in your company and your career, the Data Science Certificate program could be for you.
