Graduate Certificate in Operations Analysis

Apply Analytic Solutions to Real-World Operational & Strategic Issues

The increasing amount of available data combined with a pressing desire to stay at the forefront of competition has prompted organisations to focus on using analytics to drive strategic business decisions. Business analytics allows managers to understand the dynamics of their business, anticipate market shifts, and manage risks.

The Graduate Certificate in Operations Analysis at UNSW Canberra is designed to meet the growing demand for information analysis across various sectors. In this course, you will develop an understanding of the principles and practices of decision analytics and acquire qualitative and quantitative decision-making tools for analysing and making decisions in complex operational environments.
