For the Business Analytics Certificate, students will complete coursework in business analytics that includes general theory, best practices, data mining, data warehousing, predictive modeling, project, statistical analysis and software packages. Students also build related skills in business communication, critical thinking, and decision making.
Since this certificate is a subset of the core BA Business Analytics AAS degree courses, it will enable CNM students who have completed the BA AAS degree in a different concentration to complete the remaining technical courses in this area and earn this certificate. Additionally, this certificate is ideal for students coming to CNM with AA/AAS/BS degrees who wish to do the core technical course work for this area.
Some courses are not eligible for Financial Aid. Please check the list here when considering a course.
Many of the courses in this program are transferable and some may be applied to four-year degree programs at other institutions. CNM currently has transfer agreements with many colleges and universities in New Mexico and elsewhere.
* Note: Students who plan to transfer to a four-year business program are encouraged to meet with the BIT advisor, program chair or associate dean during their first term.
