UD Professional and Continuing Studies certificate curriculum helps students meet big data graduate program prerequisite

With a bachelor’s degree in business management and a career predominantly spent in collections and customer service, Jamie Spencer probably did not envision himself pursuing a master’s degree in data science. When University of Delaware’s Division of Professional and Continuing Studies introduced “Analytics: Optimizing Big Data Certificate,” it was a perfect fit. This certificate focuses on the unique combination of computational, analytical and communication proficiencies required by the big data field and introduces the tools and techniques needed to analyze large datasets in order to make more informed business decisions.
