Build a Professional Portfolio

Being able to showcase your skills is the key to landing a data analytics job, and our project-based curriculum will teach you how to make data-driven decisions in the workplace by building projects that you can share with future employers. Using industry-standard tools and real-world datasets, you’ll master data analysis fundamentals and become an expert in finding and utilizing insights to tell compelling stories to colleagues and stakeholders. DATA graduates are job-ready from the day they complete this program.

Capstone Project & Job Readiness

To complete our immersive program, you will work independently on a Capstone Project that you choose based on interest and career goals.

Upon completion, students will get the opportunity to present their Capstone Project at a hiring day event (Capstone Showcase Day) attended by employers from New York City.
