Database Administration Certificate (Undergraduate)
Databases are the backbone of most businesses today. They're the means by which large quantities of information can be stored, sorted and retrieved, and are used to support an organization's internal operations, such as payroll and time sheets, as well as information specific to the workplace—like project management, inventory and health records.
If you're interested in becoming an essential part of your organization, our undergraduate Database Administration Certificate can help you better understand the language of database management (SQL) as you learn more about information systems, programming processes and database optimization.
This course examines the use of database technology in a variety of information technology applications. Emphasis is placed on implementing, configuring, deploying, and maintaining SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), Analysis Services (SSAS), and Reporting Services (SSRS) solutions. This course addresses the objectives contained in the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) for implementing a data warehouse with Microsoft® SQL server.
