Data Visualization MicroCredential


with Nick Marcus

Calendar Next available session starts Oct 12, 2021 at 5:30 pm, runs for 24 weeks
In this 3 course program, students will learn how to turn raw data into a clear visual story through infographics and data visualization using Tableau. Data has become the most important resource for every business, and so the ability to distill raw numbers into meaningful messages is coveted by employers and entrepreneurs alike. But the insights gained from data analysis will only ever be truly valuable if they can be clearly expressed to other people – bosses, colleagues, clients, customers, or other stakeholders. This credential will be useful for anybody working with lots of data (as an analyst, data scientist, academic, finance officer, or business manager) who needs to find creative ways to effectively convey the meaning to other people.
