Technical skills are not enough to get you hired

According to hiring managers, most job seekers fail to impress on structured thinking and problem-solving.

We teach what hiring managers look for

Our curriculum goes beyond just the technical skills, to focus on areas where employers find the biggest gaps -- strategic thinking, problem-solving, and communication.

Watch videos from Microsoft. Learn insights from McKinsey experts. Tackle case studies from Harvard Business School. No other data analytics bootcamp does this.

You’ll graduate with an analytical mindset. That’s an edge not just for your job search, but throughout your career.

What you'll learn

We partnered with industry insiders, so you can learn the skills that employers look for. The curriculum is split into 5 units covering the topics below.

Framing structured thinking
Analyzing business problems
Connecting data using SQL
Visualizing data with Python
Communicating your analysis
Estimated time: 25+ Hours

All data analysis starts with a question. But how does one ask the right question? In this unit, you'll learn to think in a structured manner and break down problems into bite-sized chunks, which can be tested. This will guide your analysis and prevent you from analyzing data for the sake of analysis.

  • Structured thinking through case studies and problem statement worksheets
  • Problem Solving Framework and Processes such as the HDEIP Framework
  • Issue Trees, Hypotheses Trees, and Value Driver Trees
Estimated time: 85+ Hours

A key skill analysts should have is the ability to structure their efforts around a central theme and present it to an executive with tangible business insight. In this unit, you’ll be introduced to common financial concepts as well as the basics of economics.

  • Using Excel to create a default financial analysis module covering revenue and operational cost modelling.
  • Financial concepts including revenue, cost of goods sold, profit, balance sheets, cash flow statements, income statements and EBIT
  • Economic concepts including supply and demand curves, cost curves
  • Statistical concepts including descriptive statistics (mean, mode, standard deviation, correlations etc.), correlations, simple and multivariate regression, confidence intervals
Estimated time: 30+ Hours

You’ve been asked to analyze an extensive set of data so you can answer the burning question your executive has. In this unit, you’ll develop a high-level understanding of what databases are, learn about the databases that you can use in your work, and learn how to communicate with databases.

  • Introduction to SQL, best practices in writing queries (including common table expressions) and common DA/BA tools
  • Introduction to structured and unstructured Databases
  • Introduction to set theory
  • Case studies and hands-on exercises in writing SQL with real data
  • Advanced supplementary material (i.e. Mode SQL)
Estimated time: 40+ Hours

Coding skills, especially the ability to do data analysis in Python, are an additional skill set which will set you apart from your peers in the job market. In this unit, you’ll learn the basics of Python and key Python libraries, including pandas, numpy, matplotlib, seaborn, and more. You will learn how to import and wrangle data, as well as visualize it.

  • Basic Python syntax
  • Introduction to Jupyter and Jupyter Notebooks
  • Data cleaning
  • Visualizing data and trends with Seaborn and Matplotlib
  • Practical exercises in Python with real data to extract insights that could be presented to an executive audience
Estimated time: 60+ Hours

Data analysts also need to be adept at presenting the results of their analysis to the appropriate stakeholders. This is a key, high-demand skill that separates effective business-oriented data analysts from the rest. This unit covers best practices for presenting to both technical and non-technical audiences, ranging from front-line employees to executives.

  • Visualization tools such as Tableau and PowerBi
  • Creating presentations with Powerpoints etc.
  • Effective communication strategies, formats, and templates
  • Presentations to technical and non-technical stakeholders, and C-suite executives through case studies
  • Presentation practice across different forms

How do tuition payments work?

There are 4 payment options (all of which come with our job guarantee as long as you meet eligibility requirements). Our two standard payment plans are:

  • Monthly Plan: You pay $1,100 per month while you are enrolled in the program. If you take 6 months to graduate, your total payment is $6,600. If you graduate sooner, you pay less!
  • Upfront payment: You pay $5,500 upfront for 6 months. This is a 16% discount on the monthly plan.

In addition, we have 2 other payment options. These are available by application to qualifying US citizens and permanent residents. If you are not a US citizen or permanent resident, you can still apply for financing with a fully qualifying co-borrower who is a citizen or permanent resident - as long as you both have a US address.

  • Deferred Tuition: You pay a $500 deposit upon enrollment to confirm your seat (that's a discount on the normal $1,100/mo plan). Then, you’ll pay the remaining tuition ($7,500) only when you land a job using your newly learned skills. You can pay that final balance in 12 monthly installments of $625. The remaining tuition will be waived if you don’t get a job, and maintain eligibility, within six months of graduating!
  • Climb Credit loan: Available by application to qualifying US citizens and permanent residents. If you are not a US citizen or permanent resident, you can still apply for financing with a fully qualifying co-borrower who is a citizen or permanent resident - as long as you both have a US address. If approved, you pay $500 deposit to confirm your seat. You can finance the remaining $6,100 through a loan. You’ll make small interest-only payments for the first 6 months ($37-75/mo). After that, you will pay 36 monthly payments of $198-219 each. Learn more here

Please note: lending might not be available in all 50 states - click here for the current full lending list.
All charges will be in USD (based on the above prices). If you reside outside the U.S., this might carry an additional transaction fee, depending on the bank you use. We display prices in your local currency to give you an estimate of how much you will pay based on prevailing exchange rates, excluding transaction fees.

I need help with payments. Do you offer financing?

Yes, we have a financing option available! Students can apply for a loan with our partner Climb Credit, and if approved, use it to pay for tuition. Learn about the application process on Climb Credit's website here.

We do also have a Deferred Tuition payment plan. With this payment plan, you can pay an initial upfront deposit ($500) and then not pay anything else until you graduate. This option is not subject to interest on payment––you will owe a flat fee of $7500 once you get a job. This fee will also be broken up into monthly payment of $625/month over 12 months.

Please note: lending might not be available in all 50 states - click here for the current full lending list.
