Why study Data Science?

Data Analytics is growing rapidly in organizations across the globe. From large to small, public to private, and profit to nonprofit, organizations are using analytics to improve decision making. Executives realize that leveraging new technologies and better utilizing available data can lead to more effective strategies and, ultimately, to better ways to service their customers.

However, many organizations lack the knowledge to effectively utilize data analytics. As a result, a strong demand for professionals with analytics skills has developed and will continue. The Data Analytics certificate prepares individuals to develop logical data models, construct data warehouses, build visually effective data displays and use sophisticated analytical techniques to glean valuable insights.  http://business.uc.edu/graduate/certificates/cert-analytics.html
