An introduction to data analytics

The September semester for this program will be delivered in a multi-modal format with a mixture of on-campus, mixed mode and remote classes. All students will be able to access Bond’s exceptional, personalised learning experience regardless of their location.

In this Graduate Certificate you will learn advanced statistics, econometrics and machine learning. Upon graduation, you will be able to work as a data analyst, business analytics specialist or play a key role in any organisations data and information management department.
