Summer: June 21 - August 29, 2020

Data science isn’t just for youthful job seekers or the technically skilled. Create your own aptitude for data analytics and prove your capability to learn, understand, communicate, and teach findings that could be a game-changer for your career, a company, or an industry at-large. See why data science appears on more employers’ wish lists for employee skills, and how it can shape and inform major decisions or issues. Connect those conceptual lessons with hands-on experience using Excel, the program used frequently for performing data analysis. Through a basic and intermediate course with Excel, your understanding of data manipulation, model creation, visualization, and more, will amount to mastery. Prove your ability to apply it all to a real-world application and presentation of analysis, machine learning, and visualization, and use your certificate as leverage for upward mobility.
