Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Analytics

Learn to leverage the big data revolution that is transforming today’s healthcare systems through in-demand skills in reporting and analysis.

The Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Analytics enhances your analytical skills and ability to generate insights and solutions from data to improve the performance of healthcare organizations. Elective coursework focuses specifically on predictive analytics, business intelligence in healthcare, and advanced uses of Excel.

This certificate program is designed to be completed part-time in two semesters on campus and can be completed in one to two semesters online. You can continue to build on your healthcare administration knowledge by stacking the Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Analytics with our Graduate Certificates in Healthcare Management & Leadership (which should be taken first, if you stack them) or Healthcare Quality & Patient Safety. If you apply to the Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) degree program or to another graduate business degree program, you may be able to apply the courses in this certificate program to reduce the time it will take to complete your master’s degree.

Courses are taught by leading faculty at the Sawyer Business School, which is ranked among the best in the world.
