The analytics certificate is for those who want to enter one of the fastest growing professions in the United States.

A certificate program provides an opportunity for students with no previous college experience, for students who already hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university, and/or for learners who are working on an associate or baccalaureate degree to undertake a highly focused program of study intended to meet specific licensing/endorsement requirements or to develop specific skills, understandings, and attitudes that have direct application in the workplace. Students enrolled in these programs are required to take no fewer than 6 semester credits at Grand View University.
