Business Analytics - MS and Certificate

What is business analytics? It's the journey from data to value. Data has always been around. What’s new is the rate at which we’re creating it, storing it, and our ability to process it. Until it can guide business decisions, data lacks value. Through business analytics, data finds meaning and guides decisions. That's value.

With new programs popping up daily, how do you separate deep analytics expertise from new kids on the block? At Tippie, we have a long analytics heritage and some of the most sought-after teaching talent in the country. All this expertise drives how we develop your analytics skillset.
