Villanova University Offers Master Certificate in BI

Master certificate also known as graduate certificate offers professionals the option to gain needed skills, typically in a shorter period, through a course of study in a specific area.

One great thing about Master certificate is that they do not expire like professional certificate, and do not require continuing education to keep the certification valid.  They are usually offered by accredited university like the one I'm about to present from Villanova University.

The term "Business Intelligence" is not a new concept or technology really, however, it has gained so much attention in the last few years.  The BI and data analytics industry is about the take off to a new level in coming years, creating massive shortage of professionals with the right set of skills and knowledge.

I completed Villanova's Master Certificate in Business Intelligence program last year, it was much better than what I expected.  It is geared for seasoned data professionals who wants to freshen up their knowledge as well as folks who want to jump shift into the field of BI.

Upon completion of the three-course master certificate program, which includes a project and final exam, you’ll be recognized as a Certified Professional in Business Intelligence (CPBI). Your certification will validate your business intelligence knowledge, helping establish you as an expert who can avert disaster, achieve success and advance the goals of any organization.

There are three courses that are designed to be taken sequentially, starting with high level topics and narrowing down to more focused material.  It even touches on technical aspect of BI such as data warehousing and SQL programming.

The program is not going to turn you into a BI expert for sure.  After all, this is one of the shortest Master certificate program you will find requiring only about 7 months of your time.

Here are the key topics covered in each of the three courses.
