Analytics and Insights Certificates

Data science and predictive models are at the heart of many technology-based solutions to business issues. The need for qualified professionals who can understand, create, monitor and evaluate these analytics is high and growing rapidly.

In fact, a recent McKinsey Institute analysis predicts there will be a shortfall of 140,000 to 190,000 candidates with deep analytical talent, plus a need for an additional 1.5 million data-savvy managers by 2018.

That’s why Rockhurst University’s Helzberg School of Management offers the Analytics and Insights Certificate with three unique tracks:

  • Data Science
  • Business Intelligence
  • Health Analytics

If you have an accredited bachelor’s degree, a basic statistics course on your transcript, exposure to programming and/or coding concepts as well as SQL, and a desire to find interesting patterns in your company’s data, a certificate in analytics and insights from the Helzberg School is for you.

The Program

Each track is comprised of six eight-week courses. On campus classes meet one evening per each of the eight weeks. Online classes typically require weekly assignments. You have the option to take courses 100% online, to take a mixture of on campus and online courses or to take all courses on campus. If you take one course per eight-week session, you will complete your certificate in about 15 months. Additional prerequisite coursework may be required. Find out more here

Experienced Faculty

Gaining experience starts with experienced faculty. Here, you’ll learn from doctoral-level, full-time professors from the AACSB-accredited Helzberg School of Management, along with practicing experts.

Points of Entry

With five points of entry, you may begin your certificate program in early January, mid-March, late May, mid-August, or mid-October.

At this time it is not possible to receive more than one Analytics and Insights Certificate or to complete more than a single track within the Analytics and Insights Certificate. You are welcome to take enroll in additional courses, but only one certificate will be issued.
