About this Course


Public and private organizations are gaining access to increasingly large quantities of data. Because that data can help them improve their products, data literacy and analysis have become essential professional skills.

In this entry-level course, you'll learn how to understand, analyze and present data. We’ll start with a broad overview of the data analysis process and then work on developing each of the fundamental data analysis skills. You’ll acquire and clean data using SQL and Excel and analyze data using key statistical concepts such as correlation, regression and clustering. And — because it's important to be able to communicate your findings — you’ll learn how to choose the best visualization for your data and to design effective visualizations using Tableau.

You can take this course on its own or use it as a foundation for the Certificate in Data Visualization. With further preparation, you may also be interested in pursuing the Certificate in Data Analytics: Techniques for Decision Making.

Designed For

Professionals without backgrounds in statistics and programming who want to gain basic data literacy and analysis skills.
