What you'll learn in this data analytics bootcamp

The 400+ hour curriculum features a combination of videos, articles, hands-on projects, and career-related coursework. Studying 15-20 hours per week, you should complete it in 8 months or you can dedicate more time to finish faster.

Foundations: Mathematics and data basics
Framing structured thinking
Analyzing business problems
Connecting data using SQL
Visualizing data with Python
Communicating your analysis

Refresh your basic math skills to start the course before moving on to visualizing data using multiple chart formats and finish with an introduction to the logical thinking frameworks analysts use to approach problems.

Students typically finish these units in 6-8 weeks but you can progress to the core curriculum at any time by passing the technical skills survey.

  • Percentages and ratios
  • Algebra as a data professional
  • Basic to intermediate visualizations using charts
  • Using issue trees to visualize data and solve problems
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

Frequently asked questions

What are the prerequisites for admission?

The Data Analytics Foundations to Core course has no prerequisites. It includes foundational units helping you refresh your basic mathematics, get experience visualizing data using core chart formats and learn the logical frameworks analysts use to solve business problems before starting the Data Analytics Career Track curriculum.

If you’re already comfortable in these areas, you won’t be required to complete these units. During the enrollment process you’ll complete a technical skills survey which will help us gauge your ideal starting point.

How does the admissions process work?

Spots are limited and we accept candidates on a monthly basis. We have a multi-step application process.

  • The first step involves a 5 minute questionnaire to learn about your prior educational and work experience.
  • You’ll then have a brief phone call with one of our Admissions Directors to discuss your experience before taking a technical skills survey to determine your best starting point.
  • You may begin in the foundations curriculum or skip straight to the core course depending on the results.
How long does this course take?

The course includes a 400 hour core career track curriculum plus 40 hours of foundational units. Students are expected to graduate in 8 months working 15-20 hours per week, however you may choose to dedicate more time and complete sooner.
