In the age of analytics, transforming huge amounts of data into meaningful insights and customer value is essential to effective data-driven business practice.

Professionals who can combine foundational data wrangling and statistical analysis with more advanced use of spreadsheets and SQL can quickly move up in this growing field as a business or data analyst.

This microcredential has been created in collaboration with Tableau for professionals looking to master key statistical concepts and techniques and leverage the data analytics tools essential to modern data analysis practice.

You’ll build core quantitative data analysis skills in managing and analysing complex data sets with Excel and SQL, and learn to make business recommendations using analytical modelling, progressing from diagnostic analysis through to predictive models.

As well as enhancing your data analytics and modelling skills, this microcredential offers the latest training in using business intelligence tool, Tableau, to communicate your analysis through data visualisations and dashboards.
