The Graduate Certificate in Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing provides managers with the necessary skills to develop and analyze large-scale data warehouses with an emphasis on marketing applications.

Structured to enhance professional development for information technology professionals, this certificate provides a foundation for understanding how to apply business intelligence techniques to extract information that reveals trends and market behavior. An emphasis is placed on the management and competitive-advantage analysis of data.

The program also includes:

  • Hands-on experience in the design and management of data warehouses using Oracle data warehousing software
  • Topics such as: data modeling, mining and management; decision support systems, OLAP (online analytical processing), and business intelligence
  • The study of successful data warehouse installations

The data warehousing certificate is offered at Loyola's Water Tower Campus, off North Michigan Avenue.
