What is higher education analytics?

Higher education analytics is the application of statistics to postsecondary institutions while taking into account the cultural and regulatory environment that surrounds them. In this program, you’ll focus on creating new solutions for informing administrative, programmatic, financial and performance decisions. Many of these strategies and solutions can also be applied in K-12 education.

What makes this certificate unique?

 

While other programs address similar concepts, they’re all industry specific. They rarely talk about predictive analytics, and when they do it’s typically only covered as one small segment of a larger class. This certificate’s curriculum was created to fill a critical need in higher education and is designed specially for education professionals. It uses higher education examples and powerful tools to teach a subject matter expert how to gather, cleanse, analyze and report on data to improve operations in every aspect of higher education. It also provides analytical and critical thinking, inspiration, technology and communication.

What education analytics skills will I learn?

 

You’ll study education analytics skills like data mining, predictive analytics, sentiment analysis and data visualization. Throughout your coursework, you’ll apply these abilities to applicable data you’ve sourced from the higher education environment where you work, protecting privacy as required. If you do not have access to suitable data from your workplace, your instructors will provide you with sample sets. In addition to expanding your technical skills, you’ll also study how to manage and review data to make decisions.

Throughout the program you’ll build experience:

  • Interacting with databases.
  • Using data mining tools.
  • Working with statistical programs.

What industries hire education analytics graduates?

 

By studying data analytics in higher education, you’ll develop talents that can be applied to work in postsecondary educational institutions, K-12 environments and other sectors outside of direct education. You can prepare to pursue roles with accrediting associations, education agencies, education efficacy organizations, private consulting firms, software development and more.

Does my higher education analytics certificate say 'online'?

No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.” That’s because ASU Online students learn from the same faculty and receive the same course content as in-person students receive.
