Certificate in Sport Analytics


Big data and analytics are buzzwords today. It is not an exaggeration to say that sports played a leading role in bringing analytics to the public consciousness. Any understanding of analytics should include its application in sport as well as the history and development of statistical analysis.

The Sport Analytics certificate program consists of five courses that provide cross disciplinary (program) exposure to instruction from the Sport Management and the Business Analytics Programs. The Sport Analytics program is appropriate for those already employed in the sports industry and are interested in transitioning in to the analytics department or for those that are seeking a certificate solely in analytics.

Note: Students are held to all prerequisite requirements; some students may require more than 5 courses to complete this certificate.

Note: Students may also seek approval from the Sport Management Chair or Business Analytics Chair to waive prerequisites based on previous College or work experience.
