Data Analysis

Deliver critical insights that power business strategy

Our Approach

Business-Driven Data Analysis is designed to help you translate a business problem into data analysis that provides actionable insights. The curriculum provides you with time to embrace concepts, practice new skills, and apply what you’ve learned to a challenge in your own work.

Through a cycle of real-world business challenges (from a C-suite presentation to a data visualization request), presentations, feedback and reflection, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. 

In this interactive, live masterclass led by experienced instructors, you’ll practice new skills in different contexts and levels of difficulty, discuss with peers, and share feedback for improvement. Transform the way you present insights and advance from a tactical role to being a strategic contributor for your organization.

You’ll leave the course able to optimize your data projects, solve business problems with critical insights, and elevate your career.
