Data Analytics - ALX

Data Analytics

Data tells stories, solves problems and is the brain behind business. As a result, big data has created an overwhelming need for employers to have teams who can sift through data, make sense of it, and utilise it to support the customer experience, sales enablement, and strategic decision-making.

As a data analyst, you will have the power to increase efficiency and improve a company’s performance by learning to read data patterns. Work with complex datasets by advancing your programming skills, and use these skills for data manipulation, analysis and exploration.

Delivered in partnership with ExploreAI, the ALX Data Analytics programme prepares you for a lucrative, in-demand global career as a data analyst.
