Not necessarily. Some material may be more advanced to those without any previous experience, in which case our mentors can work with you to help fill the knowledge gap to ensure you are getting a full experience.

How many hours a week should I expect to spend on the program?

Each week learners can expect to spend four to six hours working independently (engaging with the online content and/or working in their Strategic Business Analytics Playbook). In addition, learners will meet once a week for one to two hours in a live, group session. These live sessions are optional but highly recommended.

If I enroll in this program, am I considered a University of Arizona student?

No, participants in these noncredit programs are not admitted to or enrolled in a University of Arizona for-credit program. Program participants will not be issued a student ID card (CatCard), and they will not have access to on-campus recreational facilities, library privileges, computer labs, discounts or other admitted-student benefits.
