What is the Data Analytics Programme?

Developed in partnership with ExploreAI, a leader in Data Analytics education.

The first 8 weeks are ALX Foundations, where you will learn critical communication, leadership, and career development skills that will help you thrive in the digital workforce.

During the data analytics specialisation, you will focus your attention on real-world applications of data analysis and gain a basic understanding of how to explore, analyse, transform, and visualise data. In the end, you will receive a certificate of completion in Data Analytics.

ALX had a profound impact on my career development. The programme exceeded my expectations in every way. Within weeks of graduating and implementing some of the learnt strategies, I began to get invitations for interviews, one of which has translated into my current job.”
