Course Overview

As the world becomes ever more data-driven, analytical skills are in high demand, but in very short supply. Organizations across the world are racing to gain a competitive edge by building their internal expertise to exploit quantitative techniques to their full potential.

Guided by LSE experts, this eight-week online certificate course provides you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to increase your ability to understand, interpret, and communicate data relevant to your role and organization. During the course, you’ll develop an understanding of how data-driven models can inform managerial strategy and decision-making, learn how to extract business insights from data, and predict future trends.

The course emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning data skills through its introduction to Tableau, an industry-leading business intelligence and analytics software. Using Tableau, you’ll have the opportunity to apply the tools and techniques you learn, and discover how it can be used to produce insights and high-impact data visualizations.
