Champlain's online business analytics courses encompass the top skills needed by today's business professionals.

Required Courses

This course covers the foundations of Data Management for Business Analytics. Students examine and explore the value of information, as an asset and as a liability, and organize and assess its value in an information- driven organization dealing with the challenges of Big Data, Open Data and privacy protection legislation.

Students learn to create powerful reporting tools, to forecast data behavior, and to explore its use in business. This class has a hands-on approach, developed in the context of the application of analytics to business, allowing students to develop the skills necessary to create relevant tools for data-driven organizations. All hands-on work assumes the existence of a technology infrastructure, and no prior knowledge on how to install or maintain the software used in the labs is required.

Students apply the business analytics skills to specific business areas. Students will explore techniques and develop tools that model consumer behavior, supply and demand, and financial performance, in order to predict data evolution in different conflicting scenarios. Students will also apply business analytics to HR decision making such as recruiting, performance measurement, or compensation.
