What you’ll learn in this data analytics bootcamp

Over six months, you’ll master both technical and strategic thinking skills to succeed as a data analyst. Learn AI tools to assist in uncovering patterns and extracting insights for decision making that will drive change in almost any company.

Topic 1: Structured Foundations

In this unit of our online data analytics bootcamp, you'll learn to break down problems into bite-sized chunks, which can be tested via hypothesis trees. This type of thinking will guide your analysis and prevent you from analyzing data for the sake of analysis. 

  • Learn structured thinking through case studies and problem statement worksheets

  • Work through problem-solving frameworks and processes, such as the HDEIP Framework, 7-Step Problem Solving Framework, and others

  • Break down problems to find a solution using Issue trees, hypothesis trees, and value-driver trees

Topic 2: Microsoft Excel for Business Analytics

Excel is an essential tool for day-to-day tasks, from creating detailed dashboards and putting together simple investigations. In this unit, you’ll practice key areas and functions of Excel.

You’ll also work on the first phase of your Capstone project by generating ideas and finding a dataset.

  • Use logical operands and advanced Excel formulas and functions

  • Use pivot tables for well-structured data

  • Apply statistical functions

  • Create basic visualizations using tools like bar charts, waterfall charts, and column charts

Topic 3: Financial Analysis

As a data analyst, you’ll have to understand the data in front of you and translate it into a business mindset. In this unit of our data analytics boot camp, you’ll learn how to become more fluent in financial concepts.  

  • Apply problem-solving and analytical skills to real-life data sets to derive business insights

  • Define financial terminologies such as revenue, cost of goods sold, earnings before interest, assets, liabilities, and profitability

  • Work on a case study covering creating a problem statement, value driver trees, revenue analysis, total operating expenses, EBIT calculations, and presenting your visualized data

Topic 4: Economics for Data Analysis

In this unit, you’ll begin to unpack economic principles that will drive your data analysis. You’ll understand how the larger economic environment will inform business questions and decisions.

  • Study high-level economic principles like demand, supply, elastic goods, inelastic goods, monopolies, market supply, and cost curves

  • Develop business insights based on data analysis and economic principles

  • Complete a case study on cost-effectiveness and present it

Topic 5: Statistics for Data Analysis

Following a unit on economics, you’ll focus on understanding how statistics make up decision-making. You’ll learn two kinds of statistics — descriptive and inferential. 

  • Descriptive statistics concepts like mean, median, mode, spread, histograms, and box plots

  • Inferential statistics concepts like correlation, confidence intervals, margins of error, and regression

  • Continue with the case study and provide descriptive and inferential stats

Topic 6: Visualization Tools

In this unit, you’ll move away from upfront analysis and work on making your data more accessible to all audiences through visualization tools. Knowing how and when to display trends and patterns in data can make a difference between having your insights and decisions sink or swim.

  • Develop an advanced ability to use two visualization tools: Tableau and Power BI

  • Learn to prepare data, such as reshaping and removing bad data

  • Learn the basics of Data Analysis Expressions (DAX)

  • Work on a case study using the visualization tools you’ve learned

Topic 7: The Art of Storytelling

You’ve prepared your data and developed visualization tools. Now it’s time to craft a cohesive presentation to communicate to a variety of stakeholders. When you master the art of effective storytelling through visuals, executives won’t just adopt your analysis — they’ll promote adoption and grow the business based on those key insights. 

  • Learn effective communication strategies, formats, and templates

  • Make effective presentations to technical and non-technical stakeholders, including C-suite executives, through case studies

Topic 8: Data Connectivity

In this unit, you’ll develop a high-level understanding of what databases are, learn about the databases you can use in your work, and how to communicate with databases.

  • Learn SQL best practices in writing queries (including common table expressions)

  • Learn about structured and unstructured databases

  • Complete a mini-project focusing on extracting data from a database via SQL, analyze it, and present your insights

Topic 9: Data Analysis in Python

This last technical unit concentrates on coding skills you’ll need to set yourself apart from your peers in the job market. 

  • Learn basic Python syntax

  • Learn to use Git, GitHub, and Juptyer notebooks to share your code and projects

  • Learn to import and wrangle data

  • Work through practical exercises in Python with real data to extra insights

Topic 10: Projects

You’ll work on two capstone projects to give you the hands-on knowledge of working like a data analyst.

  • Capstone 1: Executed in three phases throughout the curriculum, you’ll conduct an end-to-end analysis. Find a data set, structure relevant and valuable problems, perform analysis, create visualizations, and present your findings and recommendations.

  • Capstone 2: A more in-depth and technical capstone that enhances your learning of the five steps of the HDEIP framework. You’ll find your dataset, create a problem statement and issue tree, analyze and visualize your data, create visualizations with Tableau or PowerBI, and present your findings. You’ll also extract data from a relational database using SQL and clean data using Python.

Topic 11: Career Support

Career units throughout the bootcamp will help you create a tailored job search strategy based on your background and goals. Topics include:

  • Types of industry roles 

  • Job search strategies

  • Building a network and using it to land interviews
