Thoroughly enjoyed the program. Amazingly diverse class full of passionate instructors who care about you and how you do in your career. I'll be taking the Advanced Cyber Security Program in the winter term, then on to the CISSP!

I took the certificate in big data analytics and the follow-on certificate in predictive analytics. I worked in finance for a telecommunications company and studied statistics in university. Honestly, I thought the first certificate was a bit basic for me...

I took the certificate in big data analytics and the follow-on certificate in predictive analytics. I worked in finance for a telecommunications company and studied statistics in university. Honestly, I thought the first certificate was a bit basic for me, but the second allowed me to hit my stride and experiment with new tools and interesting business cases. If you want to jump straight into Predictive Analytics, you can do so by demonstrating equivalent work experience. York introduced me to valued mentors and, at the end of it all, helped me switch into a great role at a new tech firm.
