Online Graduate Certificates in Economics and Business
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The graduate certificate in Product Management & Business Analytics was developed for working professionals and recent graduates looking to develop important skills needed for career advancement.
For the Product Management Certificate: Students will learn to improve project leadership skills for marketing programs and overseeing product development teams using waterfall or Agile methodologies. They will also have the opportunity to develop abilities in strategic decision making, tactical product development and operational optimization to create valuable, market-leading products that, if successful, lead to greater corporate profitability. This graduate certificate can add considerable value to your resume and help you advance your career.
For the Business Analytics Certificate: Students will be taught the skills and knowledge to be able to develop the necessary data-driven analytic frameworks and models to determine the optimal decisions at strategic, tactical and operational levels for organizations. Upon completion, students will understand the latest data analytic methods and predictive modeling tools and be able to convert raw business data into meaningful conclusions that can be used to enhance competitive success in an increasingly competitive environment. In the current age of big data, organizations increasingly have access to large streams of data that they seek to extract value from. Employees with the skills to process, analyze, and convert data into meaningful strategic insights are becoming highly valued in organizations seeking to be more data-driven.
Courses in the graduate certificate are drawn from the Engineering and Technology Management master’s degree at Mines and can be applied toward that degree (with a 3.0 final grade).
