Data Analysis Certificate

Data is the foundation of the digital age. With major increases in the amount of data being collected, new opportunities are always arising for individuals and teams to make data-informed decisions. Because of this, professionals who are comfortable working with data are invaluable to an organization’s success. The Data Analysis Certificate strengthens your ability to work with data through hands-on practice, small class sizes and instructor/student collaboration. Using both theoretical and practical approaches to data collection, data visualization, data prediction and data decisions, you develop your skills and use them to make data-informed choices within your organization.

Participants who complete the Data Analysis Certificate including Python may be eligible for elective credits in the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s MS for Information Technology Management (ITM) program. Participants need to apply and be accepted into the master’s level program for credit eligibility.
