DATA ANALYTICS

ACQUIRE VALUABLE AND IN-DEMAND DATA CAREER SKILLS

Uncover the purpose, origin and pivotal role of data analytics in today’s data-driven world. You’ll excel with the most important industry tools like R, Python and SQL to explore, understand and manipulate datasets, create compelling data visualizations and program your own AI through machine learning algorithms. In short, this minor will give you highly valuable career skills to stand out in a constantly changing and highly competitive job market.

Skills You will Gain

1. Technical Proficiency – Master the basic use of the most prominent processes, methods and tools of the data analytics industry. You’ll acquire a working understanding of popular coding languages like Python, R and SQL for data acquisition, processing, exploration, analysis, manipulation, visualization and more.

2. Investigative Analysis – Prepare to become a “dataset detective.” Using the leading industry tools, you’ll dive into real datasets to discover hidden trends and statistics to provide effective, data-driven solutions and create compelling, actionable narratives backed by real facts.

3. Problem Solving – As a data analyst, you’ll often be tasked with investigating a dataset to provide a fact-based solution to any given problem. Yet, working within a dataset presents its own myriad of problems from messy, missing or corrupted data to working with dates and times that just don’t jive with your coding library. Through repetition and hands-on execution, you’ll learn to provide simple solutions to complex problems.
