Predictive Analytics

To achieve our goal of offering industry recognized skill development and high-quality learning experiences, we are currently redeveloping curriculum and content for the Predictive Analytics certificate program. Some elective courses are currently available and redeveloped core courses will be announced when open for enrollment. Please contact your program representative with any questions about your academic plan.

Highly successful businesses know that the rules have changed. No longer can they rely solely on their product or service to grow; they must leverage their data (financial, customer support, web interactions, etc.) to understand their customers better and to learn from their collective experiences as an organization. Predictive analytics provides clear, actionable initiatives based on existing company data and is a natural extension of related corporate initiatives in web analytics, business analysis, and data mining. As Eric Siegel, Ph.D., chairman of the Predictive Analytics World, often quotes, “Business is becoming a numbers game, and Predictive Analytics is the way to play it.”
