Add one of the most sought-after skills in the workplace to your portfolio: data analysis. Companies have never had access to so much data, but surprisingly, it is rare for companies to have someone with the ability to analyze that data to see trends and make predictions. You can be this person.

The Award of Achievement in Data Analysis is a part-time, online program for anyone who appreciates the power of data-driven decision making and wants to gain an in-depth understanding of how it is deployed in a business setting.

This program focuses on the science of data and teaches you how to perform inquiries and apply statistically significant information to important business decisions. It also gives you the skills necessary to communicate these results through graphs and text that your fellow employees will understand.

 Who is the Award of Achievement in Data Analysis for?

  • Employees and managers in large companies who need to leverage data analysis for anticipating trends and making critical business decisions
  • Professionals hoping to level up in a current role or change careers
  • Digital Marketers, required to understand what resonates with users communicate with business stakeholders
  • Small-business owners who want to make decisions based on meaningful data
  • Product Managers who need to rely on user data to determine new features improvements and changes

The Program

There are three online courses and one Capstone Project that must be completed in order to receive the Award of Achievement. The Capstone Project is completed under the guidance of an instructor. If you opt to take the three courses only, you won’t receive an Award of Achievement but will receive a certificate as acknowledgment you have completed the three courses.

The Courses

Each course is delivered 100% online, and each is one month in duration:

Data Analysis CapStone Project

The Data Analysis Capstone Project is a mandatory component of the Award in Achievement in Data Analysis. The project is pre-approved and evaluated by the instructor and is typically completed within four to six weeks.

What is the Capstone Project?

  • A project in data analysis defined by you, for your own or for another organization
  • An opportunity to practice and apply the skills learned in coursework
  • Guidance and coaching from an experienced instructor in data analysis

Why a Capstone Project?

  • Apply the skills you learned in class to a real-world, practical experience of your choice
  • Show them you did it! There is nothing as powerful as proof that you have worked on a real-world problem for a real organization. Skills + experience = a strong resume builder
  • Do it even better! Get coaching and feedback on a data project that you were going to do anyway
