Certificate Program in Sports Analytics

Big data in sports provide a unique and challenging opportunity for advanced statistical analysis. Extensive data are being collected on athletes, teams, and opponents, and these data are being used in various ways. The goal of the sports analyst is to identify patterns from the data – to inform and optimize player and team strategy and to predict future outcomes in athletic performance.
