About This Diploma

Today’s world is driven by data. More than ever, companies are striving to understand how to improve their operations by
dissecting the data they collect to understand clients’ needs and industry trends.

As a Data Analyst, you could find yourself working within a wide range of organisations across a variety of sectors, but the
common denominator is the need to glean insights from data. Data comes in a variety of forms and is stored in a variety of
database management systems. And your first and foremost goal is to gather insights from the data. Often, you will be dealing
with unstructured data stored in different types of data management systems. To achieve meaningful analytical results, several
skills must be mastered.

In this diploma, you’ll gain practical analytical skills as you work through the courses. Not only will you find out more about how
data is created and managed, but you’ll also look at the fundamentals of research methods and statistical analysis. You will also
develop a strong foundation with the most powerful programming languages available for data manipulation, cleaning, and

With this diploma, you’ll acquire a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to become a junior Data Analyst. You’ll work with Python and R, two programming languages widely used in the field of data analysis. And you’ll develop valuable skills with SQL, used for querying databases, and Tableau, which is widely used for data visualisation.

Successful candidates will be proficient with Microsoft Excel and have a solid background in mathematics (e.g., algebra) and strong critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

There are many options available in this field. You could become a data science professional, pursuing jobs such as data analyst or database developer; or you could go into an analytics-related role,
such as business analyst or data-driven manager. The opportunities are countless!
