By the end of this course, you’ll know how to collect, organise, clean and analyse raw data in order to draw conclusions that can optimise a business’ performance. Whether it’s more accurate reporting and planning, leaner processes, improved operational efficiency, higher customer satisfaction, increased revenue or reduced costs – you’ll be equipped with the skills to reveal metrics or trends to inform better decision-making.

Whilst delving into the core concepts, techniques and tools of Data Analytics, you’ll also get tangible, practical experience by working on various activities throughout the course in line with industry-standards.

This course runs over 10 weeks, part-time, on campus. You’ll receive approximately 50 hours of content and practical activities.

 

Why choose this course? 

Data is the backbone of any well-informed decision, hence a vital component in driving the strategy and future growth of a company. According to Forbes, retailers who properly leverage data could increase their operating margins by 60%. 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. 

So the question is not whether the data buzz is here to stay or not. The question is: are you ready to make the most of these opportunities and boost your career by learning data analytics?

In this 10-week, part-time course, you’ll learn the methods, processes, and systems to harness data and extract knowledge that will inform better decisions, drive performance and profitability. You’ll understand how to visualise and present data to influence the decision-making process with solid evidence and  gain stakeholders’ buy-in. You’ll also hone your practical skills with regular activities throughout the course.

This course will equip you with the technical skills, adaptability and creative mindset to make sense of data, translate it into actionable insights and drive innovation. That’s a serious edge for any career. 

There is a global talent gap for people with analytics and data science knowledge, with over 5,600 roles available on Seek. The average data scientist salary in Australia is $114,600 (Indeed). You can choose to work in a myriad of industries such as healthcare, oceanography, travel, emerging tech, banking, government and more.
