About the Data Analytics Certificate Programs

As organizations become more tech-driven and collect an increasing amount of data, data analysis skills are going to play an increasingly important role in business, making the role of a Data Analyst one of the most important positions in any business structure. Data Analysts help leaders make informed, data-driven decisions to drive the company forward, improve efficiency, increase profits, and achieve organizational goals.

Data Analysts use an in-depth approach to recording, analyzing, interpreting and dissecting data, and to presenting findings in an easily-digestible format. To be effective, Data Analysts must understand the business direction and objectives, explore the meaning behind numbers and figures in data, analyze the causes of events based on findings, present insights using easy-to-understand language and contribute to business decision-making by offering informed data-driven insights.

Data analysis skills are in high-demand making it critical for accounting and finance professionals to keep up with this evolving need. So, we developed the Data Analyst Certificates bundle - a comprehensive 5-part certificate program that provides training and practical guidance on data analytics. Participants that complete this training program will make an invaluable contribution to their organization and career.
