With the amount of data available to organizations, there is a need for software tools that provide effective analysis, visualizations, and information for decision-making. Whether you are in Marketing & Sales, Supply Chain & Operations, Human Resources, Accounting & Finance, Customer Service, or Administration, data analysis will touch some part of your job.

A series of certifications, or "stackable certificates," ultimately build up to a Chancellor's Certificate. Each "stackable certificate" includes a badge that you can share on your LinkedIn profile and in your email signature. The key difference is that the smaller certificates include specific skills in the subject matter area, while a Chancellor's Certificate communicates mastery over broad themes. When you complete the requirements for your Chancellor's Certificate, UMSL issues you a printed copy of your credential with the Chancellor's signature that you can proudly display to your colleagues and family.

This Chancellor's Certificate is designed to help you understand and use the tools needed for making sense of your data. The certificate's three areas - core classes, data analysis & visualization, and electives - give you the flexibility to choose the path that applies to your experience level and job category.

You'll learn:

  • Practical skills for creating effective SQL queries and handling data with SQL.
  • How to use the data analysis software tools in demand by businesses and employers.
  • How to design visuals to add impact to your data and to tell your story.
  • An understanding of how data is organized and how to manage relationships between various data sets.

*Modifications to the course requirements are optional upon request if you feel the requirements teach to a lower skill set than your current competencies.

Courses are held monthly and may be taken online synchronously or in person at our training center in Des Peres, St. Louis County, Missouri. Employers and job centers may also request training held at an offsite location. Please contact info@cetc.umsl.edu for further information.
