In today’s data-driven society, making informed decisions that affect business growth and outcomes is becoming powered by data science. The Analytics program at GBCC is designed for those who want to understand how to work with raw data to process, analyze, and make conclusions using predictive modeling.  Students have the opportunity to further pursue a baccalaureate through the UNH Manchester Pathway or move directly into the field.

Why Great Bay?

We have an 11 to 1 student to faculty ratio which provides students a robust opportunity for greater campus involvement and success.  With an excellent proximity to neighboring industries at the Pease Trade Port, the University of New Hampshire, and the Naval Shipyard, Great Bay Community College’s students have the flexibility to enhance their education to suit their professional goals.

Career Options

Graduates of the Analytics program have the option to work in industry or the government.
