Data Analytics Pathway

Certificate to MBA 3+1+1

 

The Data Analytics Technology Pathway provides the skills necessary for analysis, design, implementation, and management of data and information systems needed to run an effective organization.

Students earn their Data Analytics Technology Certificate from MGCCC in their first year, allowing them to begin working immediately.  In their second year, students earn the Associate of Applied Science in Data Analytics Technology to improve their career opportunities. In the third year students earn their Associate of Arts degree and complete many of their core courses toward a bachelor degree.

Students then transfer to The W's College of Business & Professional Studies. The Bachelor of Business Administration – Management Information Systems (MIS) Concentration can be completed entirely online in one year, without having to leave your current job.

After completing the bachelor degree, students are encouraged to apply to The W's MBA program, completed online in one year. The MBA is widely recognized as the standard for senior management or those wishing to start their own business.
