Is This Course For Me?

BrainStation’s part-time Data Analytics course is designed to teach students how to collect, organize and analyze data, and is ideal for anyone working in marketing, product development, project management, or general business administration. The course breaks down the topic into 4 components: Understanding Data, Analyzing Data, Databases, and Communicating Data.

Hands-on, project-based learning gives students the opportunity to apply each lesson’s learnings, and by the end of the course students will have built out a dashboard to provide insight into a publicly available set of data.

When armed with the right tools, making sense of data provides a lot of value to a business, improving decision making and overall efficiency. By the end of this course, students will be well-versed in the tools used by Data Analysts. They will be able to take large sets of data and communicate insights to drive decision making in organizations, both large and small.

The learning environment is great and I always found myself wanting more.

Goal Setting

Before diving into course content, students are given the opportunity to set goals and define what they hope to achieve as a result of taking Data Analytics. Educators take this information and work with students to ensure they remain on track throughout the duration of the Data Analytics course

Access to Course Content

Students can access their Data Analytics course content at any time through the BrainStation Learning Portal to review past lectures and prepare for upcoming classes. This accessibility allows students to leverage the flipped classroom model and continually build on their new knowledge or revisit concepts outside of the classroom.

Feedback

Students are given the opportunity to share their comprehension of Data Analytics material with our Educators. This ensures students feel supported and are able to get the help they need so that they can graduate feeling confident in Data Analytics topics.

“In the real world, innovation is outpacing education and that's something we’ve recognized at BrainStation. We’re challenging how education is delivered, curated, and published. Our students and Educators benefit from the collaborative tools we’ve developed to help us get content researched, written, and peer reviewed faster than a traditional publishing cycle. We're digital-first in every facet of the phrase and that is something we’re going to continue pushing forward to guarantee our students receive the best education available.”

Student Project Showcase

Problem Space

We were inspired by the recent news events of a few US airlines kicking passengers off their flights.

Project Description

We took an in-depth look at trends over the past eight years in passenger boardings, number of denied boardings, retribution paid to passengers, airline satisfaction scores and social media activity related to the major airlines.

Learning Outcomes

The project allowed me to apply the data analytics skills I learned in class to a real-life business situation. We sourced out multiple datasets and pulled them into SQL, wrote queries to make the data usable for our analysis, then we exported the file into Tableau so that we could visualize the data and provide insights for our final presentation.

“My goal in taking this course was to increase my understanding of databases and to gain a basic understanding of SQL. I was also interested in broadening my knowledge of Tableau and how to better use the tool to visualize data and create dashboards.”
