“The ability to think conceptually about big data has been enormously helpful in transitioning to a new job.”

“After graduating with an undergraduate liberal arts degree, I found it was pretty difficult to find a job in today’s market. The Certificate in Analytics: Optimizing Big Data at the University of Delaware really stood out as a great way to bolster my quantitative skills, while diving deeper into data analytics, which I was really interested in.”

“The instructors covered a great depth and breadth of content about data analytics in the equivalent of a one-semester class, as well as best practices to communicate the resulting information to executive level decision-makers.”

“Overall, the certificate program exceeded my expectations. The ability to think conceptually about big data has been enormously helpful in transitioning to a new job that I was able to get during the course of the program, and it has already helped me a lot with a number of customers that I work with.”

Patrick Caruso is a Business Systems Analyst at Chubb Group. He completed the University of Delaware’s Certificate in Analytics: Optimizing Big Data, and also earned a Master of Science in Information Systems and Technology Management from the UD’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics.
