Data Analyst Program

Why the certification is relevant

Every organisation needs a Data Analyst cleaning the data, performing data analysis and presenting information with clear and meaningful visualisations. The role also entails discovering patterns in data and providing insights that may require further attention from statisticians and machine learning engineers.

Whilst we have smart machine learning algorithms that can analyse and interpret data, producing content for dashboards and printable reports. There is a growing demand for “interpretation of data,” which machines have not fully mastered as yet.

The Data Analyst Program including Individual Performance Coaching is offered as a 5 days training program and is designed and certified by the Global University Alliance.

Focus of the Data Analyst

There is an increasing rate of change in business and technology within the context of data usage, creation and analytics. The focus of the Data Analyst is that they work with data to help their organisations make better business decisions. Therefore, the Data Analyst role is uniquely designed to meet the needs of today to instill new cross-functional skills that support organisations to bridge the gap between data usage and data insight.

Using techniques from a range of disciplines, including computer programming, mathematics, and statistics, Data Analysts draw conclusions from data to describe, predict, and improve business performance. They form the core of any analytics team and tend to be generalists versed in the methods of mathematical and statistical analysis.

The Data Analyst Program can be integrated into any relevant organisation. It does so by adding theory, practice and modelling capabilities to the practitioner’s skill set.

Individual Performance Coaching

It is only through coaching and building on the participant’s existing knowledge that capabilities are gained and applied.

Individual Performance Coaching is an integrated element of the Data Analyst education and training program to ensure that the frameworks, methods, approaches, and modelling principles are customized, adopted and applied in a real-world project setting with a personalized action plan.

The participant will discover how to drive forth fundamental changes within their organization and to achieve the objectives set in both innovation and transformation projects.
