Associate CAP helps young analytics professionals stand out

Certified Analytics ProfessionalThe INFORMS Associate Certified Analytics Professional (aCAP™) program enables emerging analytics professionals to obtain a competitive advantage over their peers with the distinction of a certification, while affording them the opportunity to build the experience and soft skills necessary for a full CAP certification.

In addition, it provides employers with a trusted and independent verification of analytics knowledge of someone who is in the early stages of their career, making it easier for hiring managers to identify the best possible analytics talent. Universities will also be able to tout the numbers of their graduates who have obtained the aCAP, and later the full CAP, as part of their marketing efforts to prospective students, helping those analytics programs further stand out.
