Business Analytics Certificates

Certificate in Business Analytics Management

The Drexel LeBow Certificate in Business Analytics Management is designed to underscore the importance of aligning analytics with business challenges and the importance of understanding the relationship between strategies and value, as well as the role analytics plays within this relationship. Students learn the key management frameworks that can be used to achieve strategic alignment.

Classes are delivered either in-person or online in an asynchronous format. The certificate includes one required three-credit course. Students choose three other elective courses to complete the certificate.

This certificate is stackable, meaning students who complete up to three certificates in business analytics can apply those credits toward completion of a full MS in Business Analytics degree. Completing three certificates would require nine additional credits for the full MS in Business Analytics degree.
