According to a recent McKinsey Global Institute report, the United States faces a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 individuals who possess deep business analytic skills and an additional 1.5 million managers with the skill set to implement the results. Oregon State's Graduate Certificate in Business Analytics will help students develop the analytical skills required to add value to organizations across several industries.
"This program was created to help managers understand how to leverage advances in technology, data exchange mechanisms and visualization techniques to better understand their operations, customers and markets."
