Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Business Analytics

The PBC in Business Analytics was approved in Spring 2016 by the Board of Regents and entry into the program will start in Fall 2016. While designed to be an online certificate program, certain classes are also offered in the face-to-face environment.

The purpose of this program is to provide training on basic business analytics to help bridge the gap between the skills of the current workforce and the needs of industry. Conversations with industry partners have reinforced the point that one of the key skillsets employees need is the ability to problem solve and think analytically. This 18-hour certificate will help to increase the knowledge of completers in the area of problem-solving and analysis. Rather than have a student complete another baccalaureate degree or pursue a master’s degree, this certificate seeks to let the student who is already in the workforce (or the student who is not in the workforce and needs to gain additional skills) to take a very focused curriculum of classes.

As a post-baccalaureate certificate, students will need to have already a completed a baccalaureate degree. This certificate will seek to either build on knowledge the student has already gained through their baccalaureate degree or provide the student new knowledge which can help them in their career. The student will take six undergraduate courses to complete the post-baccalaureate certificate. While a baccalaureate degree will be the only admission standard, students will need certain knowledge (prerequisites) to take some of the courses. Thus, the student may need to take some foundational courses before he or she can take the courses contained in the 18-hour degree program.

Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Requirements: (18 semester hours): CIS 4000, CIS 4070, MGT 3580, MGT 4460, MKTG 4440, Either BUAD3120 or MGT 3500.

The proposed schedule would be as follows:

Summer: BUAD3120 – Intermediate Business Statistics OR MGT 3500 – Management Science, MGT 4460 – Supply Chain Management
Fall: CIS 4070 – Data Analytics, MGT 3580 – Operations Management
Spring: CIS 4000 – Advanced Database Systems, MKTG4440 – Marketing Research
