Cal Poly will begin offering a new business analytics certificate program in June.
The university is accepting applications for the five-course interdisciplinary degree intended for business leaders.
The program will include classes related to statistics, data mining, data management, econometrics and marketing analytics taken over two quarters.
The focus is on using data “to analyze and solve fundamental business problems,” according to the university.
The certificate might complement a bachelor’s degree in business, as well as other majors such as science and math, to enhance skills in a growing job market of data analysis, according to Sanjiv Jaggia, Cal Poly’s Orfalea College of Business associate dean for graduate programs.
