Supercharge Your Career: See Yourself in Data Analytics


When you look into the future, where do you see yourself? In this continuing series of articles about supercharging your career path, we’ll explore programs offered at Antioch University Midwest that are designed to put students on the path to rewarding careers.

So, where do you see yourself?

Do you see yourself in an exciting, fast-paced career that’s set to grow with the digital age? One that’s highly valued by businesses with the trending job growth projections to prove it?

If you’re ready for a career built for the future, a Data Analytics certificate may be right for you. Big Data is impacting how organizations do business, react to customers, respond to trends and plan social, political, and philanthropic initiatives. Understanding this data – and how to use it to make insightful and informed decisions – is an important skill for any business leader.

A Data Analytics certificate allows students who wish to go into management and other leadership roles to focus on understanding the techniques for collecting data – or data mining – and interpret it in meaningful ways. It will also help students understand the ethical implications of Big Data. For example, is it ethical for companies to scrape public data from sites like Facebook and use it in their marketing or debt collection efforts?

Graduates of the program will be able to recognize opportunities for the collection and analysis of relevant data to make better and faster decisions, increasing their value to the organization. The Data Analytics certificate is a perfect for those who hold or are seeking to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Management.

So, is getting a certificate in Data Analytics the right choice for you? Contact our admissions office today.
