The Graduate Certificate in Urban Analytics prepares students to manage the progressively complex issues involved with rapidly expanding data and technological resources in cities. With classes on campus and online, students obtain the practical and theoretical knowledge necessary to understand the intricacies of interconnected urban systems and to analyze how these systems can work together to create sustainable, resilient and just cities. Only a handful of U.S. universities currently offer certificates in Urban Analytics. Northeastern’s interdisciplinary curriculum, leading faculty, experiential opportunities, and its prime location at the heart of Boston set the university apart from other institutions.

- Applied Skills – Students cultivate applied skills in visual presentation, analysis, and modeling of new data sets—all of which helps to inform investment and policy making. Inspired by Northeastern’s leadership in experiential education, students use Boston and cities around the world as learning labs.
- Research – Students collaborate with faculty on groundbreaking, use-inspired research in class and in our research centers—The Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy, the Resilient Cities Lab, The Social Impact Lab, and the Boston Area Research Initiative.
