Things have changed

This is a time of transition across the globe. We’ve been challenged to adapt to new ways of living, working and learning. At The Chang School of Continuing Education that means all of our spring and summer courses will now be offered online. We’re increasing our course offerings so that students have as many options as possible to continue their education right now.

“As an urban planner, I wanted to see how big data and data analytics could improve city-building methods. The Certificate in Data Analytics, Big Data, and Predictive Analytics helped me make a career switch to focus on advanced analytics in real estate.
