Every day, business leaders make critical decisions on managing their organizations without truly understanding the second- and third-order effects of those decisions. At the same time, accomplished engineers produce ideas on changing the world through technology, but arent able to navigate barriers to their implementation from business leaders and government.
In a world of increasing speed of change and technology evolution, the challenges facing todays international society are increasingly complicatedand so are the solutions required to meet them. While creating such systemic solutions requires expertise in traditional business, management, and engineering practices, effective leadership must adopt cross-discipline approaches to support true collaboration and minimize the tendency toward reductionist rather than holistic solutions.
Successful leaders must understand and manipulate the inter-relationships between engineering, business, and policy considerations in order to achieve solutions that will meet technical and financial requirements while adhering to governance and policy constraints.

The unreasonable effectiveness of data coupled with vast amounts of available data sets have transformed the way that companies do business. Organizations without deep skills in data comprehension will ultimately be replaced by those that do. Thus, there has arisen incredible demand for individuals that can synthesize meaningful narratives from data to transform all operational aspects of an organization. Whether labeled as analysts, data scientists, or business intelligence specialists, these professionals share a similar skill set built from real world experience that a computer science, statistics, or business degree alone does not provide.
This certificate program will place data analytics and data science in historical context and examine the environmental forces shaping its continued evolution. Students will walk through each stage of the analytics pipeline that enables one to collect, clean, understand, model, and report data analyses. Students will learn how to access data from a variety of sources including relational databases, NoSQL data stores, and web-based APIs. Next, students will learn how to tackle the vastly under appreciated job of cleaning and formatting data, also known as data wrangling. Students will then be exposed to the rapidly changing fields of statistics and machine learning to achieve further insight into data. As the most complex and revealing data analysis is meaningless without effective communication, this certificate program will go past the challenge of simply visually communicating quantitative information and help students tell stories with data to impact the organizational status quo. These skills will be brought together and cemented through a capstone project.
