The MSU Global Certificate in Business Analytics program has helped me gain practical knowledge of statistical & quantitative analysis, explanatory & predictive modeling and fact-based analysis to drive decision making.

The MSU Global Certificate in Business Analytics has provided me with an opportunity to explore further the area of business analytics. It has introduced data analysis concepts along with know-how on applying these concepts at work. Given the field of big data and business analytics is evolving every day, it is vital to gain a basic understanding and applicability which then translates into business decisions that you can be confident about. I recommend this course to all those professionals who wish to build the capability to understand data and leverage it for business growth.
