Analytics Certificate Launched This Fall

New Analytics Certificate Helps Graduates Compete

The undergraduate analytics certificate was designed to further increase the marketability and preparation of Hull College graduates for the complex, datadriven workplace. The five course certificate will allow current students, alumni, and business professionals the opportunity for professional development while also investing in the future of their organizations because there is such a high demand for managers to understand, use, and apply big data results.

In May 2011, the McKinsey Global Institute published a report entitled, “Big Data: The Next Frontier for Innovation, Competition, and “Productivity” and the report highlighted not only the importance of big data as a key to an organization’s competitiveness, but also the need for highly skills data analytic practitioners. The report cited the need for 1.5 million additional managers and analysts who understand the use and application of big data results.
