Business Intelligence

Disciplined and methodical? Find success in Business Intelligence.

Gain the data analysis, technical and problem-solving skills employers seek.

With a Business Intelligence certificate*, you’ll hone your ability to analyze data to relate market and business trends to an organization. You’ll also gain the technical prowess to create data visualizations of an organization’s trends and standings within the industry. These skills will help you to increase profits and efficiency for your employer, making you an asset in whatever field you choose.

You’ll also leave here with the skills to communicate effectively, articulate your career preparation confidently and collaborate with others meaningfully. And in all things, we’ll help you work toward becoming a capable and trusted disciple of Jesus Christ. So whatever you do, you’ll be prepared to be the best you possible.

*If you're interested in pursuing a certificate in Network Administration, Business Intelligence, or Cloud & Systems Administration, you'll need to complete your IT Fundamentals certificate as a prerequisite. Equivalent industry experience may also qualify with prior approval from the Program Chair.

Interested in an Associate of Science (AS) degree?

If your goal is to get a transferable, skills-based degree, you’re in the right place. One or two standard certificates or one specialized certificate can be combined with general education courses to create your AS degree.

Seeking to expand your job-related skills to broaden career options? Strengthen your resume by including two certificates in your degree. Or, discover new interests by choosing one certificate and exploring elective credits. Are you a Pathway student interested in attending LDSBC? The one-certificate option also allows you to transfer earned credits into your AS degree as electives.

Whichever option you choose, you’ll graduate with the technical, critical thinking and interpersonal skills that employers look for, so you can secure a career and excel.

Interested in continuing your education after you graduate? No problem. Your regionally-accredited AS degree, which includes the credits from your selected certificate(s), can be transferred to a 4-year institution.

AS DEGREE + 1 CERTIFICATE AS DEGREE + 2 CERTIFICATES
Core Curriculum 34 credits 34 credits
Certificate(s) 15 credits 30 credits
Electives 11 credits
