Connecting the dots hidden within massive volumes of structured and unstructured data has become one of the greatest challenges and opportunities faced by industry, research institutions, governments, and academia today. Finding meaningful patterns and relationships from which insights can be drawn and data-driven decisions made is now foundational to competition, innovation, and productivity,

Northeastern University’s Graduate Certificate in Data Analytics was developed to help address these emerging and critical needs. This interdisciplinary program is designed to meet the interests, goals, and schedules of students and working professionals alike. All bachelor’s degrees qualify; the successful completion of an undergraduate course in statistics is the only prerequisite. A curious mind, an interest in math and technology, and a desire to make valuable, strategic contributions in their disciplines are the key attributes our data analytics students bring to their studies.

The Graduate Certificate will help students build knowledge of data management, machine learning, data mining, statistics, and visualizing and communicating data.
