Data Analytics

Register

The field of data analytics is rapidly evolving alongside the massive amount of data churned out from the increasing number of devices connected to the internet. Yet, on average, a whopping 60% to 73% of all data within an enterprise goes unused.

 

Businesses look to data analysts not only for their technical abilities to pull data and make sense of it, but tocommunicate effectively and tell a story that can inspire, influence, and drive business decisions — from the movie recommendations in your Netflix queue to the groceries you buy online from Amazon’s Whole Foods Market.

 

The University of North Florida’s Data Analytics Bootcamp offers a robust curriculum that can put you in the driver’s seat of your data career. We ensure that you not only gain all of the technical and analytical skillsneeded to excel in the field but also develop the strategic mindset that will push companies to adopt your analysis and grow their business.

You’ll learn key analytics and visualization tools like Excel, SQL, Python, Microsoft Power BI, Tableau, and more while also completing 20+ hands-on mini-projects designed to reinforce your learning through tangible outcomes. To help you pack a powerful punch to your portfolio, you’ll work on a Capstone project, bringing all of the skills you learned to the forefront in a centerpiece presentation that you can use to showcase prospective employers.

 

You’ll also get 1:1 weekly support from mentors working in the field of data analytics, a student advisor who can keep you accountable, and access to career units that will cover how to conduct a thorough job search with access to 1:1 coaching.
