When you begin looking at data analyst courses, your first question may be, what does a data analyst do? A data analyst collects data, runs that data through different types of mathematical testing, and then analyzes the results of the tested data, ultimately turning the raw data into useful information. Business leaders can then use this statistics-based information to make informed decisions that benefit the business and organizational stakeholders.
Our Data Analyst Nanodegree builds on your experience in Python, which you can pick up in the first four lessons of our Intro to Computer Science degree if you need it to get started. The program guides you through the processes of running statistical tests to study a business phenomenon, cleaning up messy data so it can be used in decision making, exploring different data analysis techniques, and summarizing the data. If this sounds like your field, and you are ready to become a data analyst, you can start your new career path with our Data Analyst Nanodegree program today.
