Why Choose Business Intelligence and Informatics?

Responding to industry trends, Ferris State University's College of Business Graduate Programs has created graduate-level advanced studies certificates. These four or five course sequences can be used to obtain stand-alone certificates or as emphasis areas leading to master's degrees in either Information Security & Intelligence or a Master of Business Administration based on the philosophy of performance metrics-based management.

The Business Intelligence certificate is designed to prepare individuals with both theoretical and practical experience in designing, developing and utilizing database and informatics systems, tools and techniques in a decision support environment including predictive, geographic, and link/visual analysis.

Admission Requirements

A bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited university with an overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.75 or better on a 4-point scale.

Graduation Requirements

The Advanced Studies Certificate in Business Intelligence is awarded to individuals who have completed the 12 required credits with a minimum accumulative GPA of 3.0 or greater and no course less than 2.0.

No more than 50% of the credits in this certificate may be transferred from another institution, nor, will this certificate be granted if more than 50% of the certificate credits are specifically required in the student's major.
