Business Intelligence & Data Warehousing Certificate
Enterprises today store vast amounts of data, but commonly are not equipped to make sound decisions based on that data or find the information stored within the data. According to Gartner, the BI world is desperately short of well-trained BI people and a comprehensive understanding of BI is rare. This certificate focuses on both the data warehouse and business intelligence. Course topics range from how to develop data models for enterprise data warehouses to understanding business intelligence theory and applying that theory through the use of common enterprise business intelligence tools. It is suggested that you complete the core classes in the order listed below. Electives can be taken in any order, although most require one or more prerequisites.
