Whether you want to change careers, enhance your current skill-set or train your employees, the Data Analytics Academy can help.
Opportunities for individuals with data analytics and big data skills continue to expand even in our highly competitive workforce. Why is that? Nearly all businesses collect data about their operations and examine this data for insight into performance improvement. As the amount of business data becomes increasingly large, insights from the data can no longer be effectively derived manually. Skilled data analytics practitioners are needed to exploit the data’s potential and drive the improvements that keep companies competitive. According to McKinsey,
"The United States alone faces a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 people with analytical expertise and 1.5 million managers and analysts with the skills to understand and make decisions based on the analysis of big data."
To fill these positions, XTOL has launched the Data Analytics Academy to offer a unique Data Analytics/Big Data Certificate designed by current and former faculty of Carnegie Mellon, Northwestern, and Yale Universities. Our program is not aimed at computer scientists, engineers, and statisticians, but at a broader range of people who want to learn to use powerful statistical machine learning tools and big data infrastructure to extract actionable business insights from mountains of business and other data. Plus, our program's unique learn-by-doing approach teaches practical job skills that can put to use immediately.
