BrainStation’s Data Analytics course is tailored to beginners who want to learn how to utilize data more effectively, whether it be for their business or personal brand. The 10 week, part-time course breaks down data analytics into 4 components, with each section led by an industry expert: Understanding Data, Analyzing Data, Databases, and Communicating Data.
Throughout the 10 weeks, students will be given a project to apply each lesson’s key learnings, thereby giving them the opportunity to build out a dashboard to provide insight into a publicly available set of data. The course is hands-on and focuses on active learning, whether it be through case study or team project work.
