In the industry, many data analytics degree programs are too heavily focused on technical learning, or too heavily focused on business processes. Our online data analytics degree program utilizes a ‘three-lever’ approach to data analytics, surgically incorporating programming, math, and business influence skills. This allows our program to strike the perfect balance to prepare our graduates to drive measurable value with data insights. Our unique approach to data analytics means that you will be equipped with the experience you need to make an impact with data and decision-making in any industry.

"WGU was a blessing for me. I had been going to school for 4 years already when I switched to WGU. Instead of having to go to school part time and only complete a few courses a year, I was able to complete my work at my own pace. I transferred in 45 credits to WGU, and in a year completed about 70 more. I don't know if I ever would have finished my degree without WGU. On top of all that, the faculty were amazing, my mentor was always looking out for me, and I learned a ton.”
