The Graduate Certificate in Applied Analytics targets professionals seeking to develop an understanding of how to apply analytics in their profession. The course will enable students to develop a sound understanding of analytics technology and equip them to apply key analytics techniques to different scenarios in their professional area and evaluate and communicate strategic and operational issues around the application of analytics concepts and theories to real-world practice.

The degree requires completion of two compulsory subjects and two elective subjects. Students who complete the Graduate Certificate have the option of proceeding to the Master of Applied Analytics which will involve completion of a further two subjects plus a Capstone project. Credit will be granted towards this Master’s degree for the four subjects completed in the Graduate Certificate.

All subjects are undertaken online providing students with flexibility in where and when they study. Students will be expected to actively participate in discussions and collaborations with their peers and teachers.

As most students in this course will be full-time professionals, enrolment is currently offered on a part-time basis only, requiring students to complete one subject per eight-week term, over an academic year of four terms. The course will typically be completed over one year part time.
