Program Information

The Rowan Experience
Open Close

There is an increased need for employees who can use programs, data, and computational tools to explore and discover relevant insights in big data as well as apply critical thinking skills to data analysis for purposes of improving organizational efficiency and solving business problems. As such, this Certificate of Graduate Study (COGS) is designed for individuals who have a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution of higher learning and are looking to expand their knowledge and opportunities in the area of data analytics.

The COGS in Data Analytics is also ideal for those who have not yet taken the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) as GMAT scores are not a requirement for admission to the COGS program. Students who wish to later pursue the MBA program at Rowan may have all COGS credits transferred into one of these degree programs.
