Both the on campus and online Bachelor of Science in Business with a Certificate in Business Analytics feature the same courses, and your academic counselor will help you schedule them. Please note that on campus students are required to physically attend class one day a week, typically from 6-10 p.m.
The study of business analytics prepares you to assess business performance, operational metrics, financial data, and other information related to the effective management of a business. The study of data science prepares you to interpret factors such as geography and customer preferences and how they affect business outcomes for an organization. Both analytics and data science are important for business study. At University of Phoenix, you can explore a business analytics certificate and a Bachelor of Science in Data Science degree.
You’ll need 27 credits to complete the business analytics certificate online. You can also pursue the Bachelor Science in Business with a Business Analytics Certificate, which includes the core courses of the business analytics certificate as electives. With a bachelor’s degree you receive a broader scope of business knowledge and skills that can enhance your professional education beyond a business analytics certificate.
1Transferability of credit is at the discretion of the receiving institution. It is the student’s responsibility to confirm whether credits earned at University of Phoenix will be accepted by another institution of the student’s choice.
