Curriculum

  • Micro-Course 1 - Using Data to Transform You and Your Work

    When bosses present a challenge, they do not want you to guess at the solution. They want you to show that you fully understand the problem and can support your recommendation with compelling evidence. In other words, they want you to be data driven.

  • Micro-Course 2 - Solving Problems the Data Science Way

    Data science, as a discipline, follows a repeatable problem-solving process that consists of three phases: hypothesize, analyze, and evangelize. In this course, you will explore what many consider to be the most crucial step in that process—hypothesize.

  • Micro-Course 3 - Metrics That Matter

    You have generated quality questions to help solve a problem with data. It is time to start answering those questions. Finding answers begins with making sure you have the right data, understand the data you have, and adequately prepare your data for effective analysis.

  • Micro-Course 4 - Statistically Speaking

    If you are going to use data to help your organization make sound business decisions, you need a basic understanding of statistics. This knowledge will allow you to begin finding patterns, making predictions, and influencing decisions within your organization. This course lays the foundation for the strategic use of statistical data.

  • Micro-Course 5 - Data Visualization: Learning from Pictures

    Getting meaning from data can be difficult when the information is in a spreadsheet. Building a visualization of data makes stories emerge. In this course, you will begin exploring some of the different ways to plot your data, discover which basic graph types work best, and use a visualization tool to unlock the stories hidden in your data.

  • Micro-Course 6 - Finding Patterns: Analyzing and Interpreting Data

    Your data is only as good as the analysis you apply to it. In this course, you will learn a variety of strategies for finding patterns in your data by understanding relationships between variables. Once you understand these relationships, you can gain insight, predict outcomes, and guide your decisions based on data findings.

  • Micro-Course 7 - The Power of Data Stories to Drive Results

    You have hypothesized with your data. You have analyzed your data. Now, it is time to evangelize the findings from your data. Your ability to unlock the meaning of your data for others is what differentiates a good data science practitioner from a great one. In this course, we teach you the skills to be a great communicator of data.

  • Micro-Course 8 - Putting It All Together: Flexing Your Data Science Muscles

    You have gotten started with data science and its application in today’s business environments. As you build your skills, you will be able to offer valuable solutions to your organization based on the knowledge you have gained in this Professional Certificate. This course will help you take a step forward and prepare to use data strategically.
