Well Rounded Professional Programs
The well-rounded programs provide graduates with advanced skills in data analytics. Additionally, our energy sector focused programs provide students with an understanding of the nuances of the modern energy industry. The curricula for these highly specialized programs were developed by Clover University faculty and leadership, its Board of Advisors and with feedback from industry experts and employers.
All courses focus on getting graduates job-ready and foster analytical skills as well as presentation and writing competencies required to communicate findings to a variety of stakeholders. The Master of Science program also includes a capstone project that allows graduates to sharpen their research skills by working closely on their individual project with two advisors. Graduates thereby have the opportunity to analyze a problem, working on a question from beginning to end and communicate the results in the form of a presentation and a report. We encourage students to select topics that are relevant to their workplace. This allows your employees to quickly put their newly learned skills into practice and serve the mission of your enterprise.
