Help/Guidance with degree plan in Data Analytics/Data Mgmt.
It has been a few years since I last posted seeking guidance on a degree plan.
Since then I have completed certs and no college credit courses.

I am now seeking help with developing a BS degree plan majoring in Data Analytics or equivalent based on what I have accomplished since my last post.

Online Degree Preference: BS Degree in Data Analytics or equivalent
Transfer Destination: Open to recommendations
Timeframe: quickest but I understand this is based on credits still needed
Cost: affordable, reasonable

COURSES COMPLETED at NU, major in Leadership & Organizational Behavior:
  • English 110 Writing Seminar I 
  • English 111 Writing Seminar II 
  • English 205 Intermediate Composition 
  • English 206 Reading & Writing Poetry 
  • Org Beh 301 Leadership Principles 
  • Org Beh 307 Organization Behavior 
  • Org Beh 311 Conflict Resolution
  • Comm 205 Theories of Persuasion
  • Phil 262 Ethical Problems & Public Issues 
CERTS I have:
  • SAS Certified Specialist
  • Microsoft Technology Specialist
  • MCSA: SQL Database Development
  • CAPM

  • Considering registering for the upcoming Udacity Business Analytics Nanodegree

Appreciate any input and guidance.

If you go through WGU for the degree, the Udacity Nanodegree is included in the cost.

If you are in the US and a US Citizen/PR, I second the notion of going for the WGU degree, especially when you mentioned you would like to get the Udacity Nanodegree as that is one thing I also recommend people to take as well. If you're overseas or in Canada, then I suggest going for the TESU BS Data one instead, as WGU doesn't accept international students (they recently stopped accepting Canadians, I think since Aug 2018).
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)
Working on: TESU BA Biology & Computer Science
Deferred: **Deciding on several Masters/PHD programs**

Thank you for pointing that out. I printed materials today and saw that it was included. Nice surprise to see that.

I already submitted a request for my transcripts to be sent to WGU for evaluation.

Now I am just going down the WGU course list and trying to match the equivalent online courses (CLEP, Saylor, etc.) I can take.

Thanks again.
