Spoke with Cappella to ask some questions about their program.

MBA6135 Data Mining and Reporting * (3 quarter credits) 

MBA6137 Primary Data Collection * (3 quarter credits)

The cost depends on how you take the courses.

GuidedPath is more like traditional schooling and is charged at $780 per credit hour or $11,700 total.

FlexPath is for independent learners, who likely bring some work experience to the program.  On FlexPath, the cost is $2,500 for each 12-week session. A motiviated candidate could easily complete the five courses in two 12-week sessions for a total of $5,000

The full MBA at Cappella is 16 courses, so by doing the certificate; you're about 1/3 of the way towards your MBA.

Ariella, this is great in today's day and age so many are unable to afford higher ed even with an interest in pursuing their education. I especially like that these scholarships are dedicated to women who still are not represented equally in analytics and business overall.Bravo Capella! What are the criteria for the scholarship?

It's great that they set this up. Tuitions can scare some people off, but this kind of education will pay off.
