Graduate Certificate in Applied Analytics

      What will I study?


      What you will learn

      The Graduate Certificate in Applied Analytics draws on evidence-based practice to develop your understanding of analytics technology – its capabilities, its limits and its pitfalls. The focus of the course is on the appropriate use of data as a tool for effective decision-making, rather than technical details.

      As a student, you will develop evidence and practice-based knowledge of applied analytics that is relevant across disciplines. You’ll gain an advanced understanding of research principles as well as data collection, measurement and management. This will prepare you to predict and influence behaviours and business decisions.

      You will learn how to:

      • Apply methods for analysing text and unstructured data
      • Calculate, manipulate and interpret data to derive alternative solutions to typical business problems
      • Drive social and organisational change and innovation through data.

      Students will also learn how to think critically about the use of data in public and private sectors. You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of the appropriate use of data as well as the challenges associated with its use.
