Why study Data Analytics? 

Data is the backbone of any well-informed decision, hence a vital component in driving the strategy and future growth of a company. If a Fortune 1000 company were to simply increase its access to data by 10%, it would generate an extra $65 million additional net income.

This explains the exponential demand across all industries for people with this skillset, with over 5,600 roles available on Seek. The average Data Scientist salary in Australia is $114,600 (Indeed).

It’s a flexible career path, as you can choose to work in a myriad of industries such as healthcare, oceanography, travel, emerging tech, banking, government and more.

Are you ready to make the most of these opportunities and boost your career by learning data analytics?
