A Note from the Program:

Professional organizations are experiencing a shortage of workers with skills in both data analysis and communication. Virtually every job sector needs employees who know how to read and interpret information to develop insights and recommend actionable outcomes. This certificate program is one way USC is responding to this need.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
