LONDON, 28 JUNE 2023: Imperial College Business School Executive Education, together with global online education provider Emeritus, has opened enrolment for its new Professional Certificate in Data Analytics. The timely programme begins as many of the world’s organisations turn to enterprise-wide data analytics strategies to navigate an increasingly complex business environment. This comprehensive 25-week programme offers participants the opportunity to build practical experience in leveraging substantial amounts of data for key business insights using highly sought-after tools and techniques, including predictive and prescriptive analytics, Python, SQL and Tableau.
Led by a team of renowned faculty from Imperial College London, the new Professional Certificate in Data Analytics comprises a six-part curriculum focused on data analytics and its modern-day business applications. Professor Wolfram Wiesemann, Dr Alex Ribeiro-Castro and Dr Fintan Nagle use a hands-on approach to train participants in the characteristics and uses of data in the analytics field, descriptive and diagnostic analyses and the foundational concepts, cutting-edge trends and real-world implications of artificial intelligence.
“The world is changing at a rapid pace, and increasingly, businesses must rely on data to guide their decisions. But many still aren’t using data effectively because they lack the right skill set,” said Professor Wolfram Wiesemann. ”This programme will help professionals develop the skills needed to identify and communicate meaningful information that leads to decisions that advance their organisations’ business goals.”
Delivered in collaboration with Emeritus, the programme includes industry insights, a job-ready portfolio and a final capstone project. Success coaching, career guidance and mentorship opportunities are also offered as part of the programme.
“The volume of data the world generates is compounding every day. To remain competitive, organisations must be able to not only collect, analyse and visualise their data; they must also be able to translate it into actionable insights. That’s why data analytics has emerged as one of today’s most in-demand skill sets,” said Adi Hanash, Senior Vice President of Product Management at Emeritus. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Imperial College Business School Executive Education to help professionals become proficient at delivering meaningful insights that lead to better business outcomes and succeed in a data-driven role.”
Imperial Executive Education’s Professional Certificate in Data Analytics is designed to give data and business professionals a set of tools they can use to mine mass quantities of data for critical business insights, accompanied by a strong technical foundation in relevant business applications. The programme is now open for application. To learn more, visit the programme page.
