The College of Staten Island offers a certificate program in Business Analytics of Large-Scale Data. Designed for a broad spectrum of students with undergraduate degrees in business and related fields, it is focused on addressing the need for skilled analytical researchers with experience in large-scale databases.

The School of Business at the College of Staten Island has the breadth and depth of faculty expertise in data analysis and forecasting to develop this program. The existing faculty members representing Finance, Economics and Information Management have the skills and background in industry forecasting and statistical modeling to develop and teach these courses. Our faculty members already participate in the research at the CUNY High Performance Computing Center and have in-depth knowledge of advanced computational methods. We also currently support doctoral students who have a research focus on advanced computational methods.
