Students have the opportunity to build and develop data analysis, critical thinking and decision making skills across three key areas: pricing, promotion and assortment. The course is accredited by the Category Management Association, and prepares students to write the Certified Professional Category Analyst (CPCA) exam, and if successful earn this industry certification.
