Certificate Programs in Analytics and Statistical Studies (PASS)
From in-depth clinical trial design and analysis to data mining skills that help you make smarter business decisions, our unique programs focus on practical applications and mastery of skills you need to stay ahead in your field. Whatever your profession and industry, we have specific programs to expand your statistical skill set and meet your business requirements.
Each certificate program provides an appropriate balance of conceptual understanding and practical skills, and will give you the statistical skills and software facility you need in your studies, projects and reports. While open to all, PASS is particularly suitable as part-time study for working professionals.
Legacy PASS programs
Structure of PASS
Courses are taught by leading experts with whom you share a private discussion forum for the entire course period. Students participate from all over the world - lessons are opened and closed on a weekly basis, but you may organize your time however you like within each week - there are no set times when you must be online.
There are four main components to each course:
- Course materials (course text, course files, video and other materials)
- Discussion with the instructor and other students via daily web forum (asynchronous - you need not be online at any particular time of day)
- Homework (submitted online weekly, with individualized feedback the following week)
- Final project/exam

PASS candidates and all students who have enrolled in a course within the last 12 months may borrow materials from the Institute library. Please use this library request form.
As a PASS candidate, once you successfully complete half your program courses, you are eligible for our personalized placement services. We will review your background, your interests, and your work at the Institute, and try to find a match with appropriate recruiters. Our specialty is early-to-mid-career placement (not entry level).
