How It Works
Take everything you know about online courses and throw it away. Applying the best of both worlds, this program blends the structured familiarity of in-person classes with the ease and convenience of virtual learning, delivering you the tools and resources you need to succeed. Experience high-quality content, engaging group discussions and develop relevant, applicable skills from the moment you log in.
Once you’ve tackled the modules on your own, meet with your peers once a week in LiveLab, a virtual classroom conducted over Zoom.
During these sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to work with your peers and instructor to deepen your understanding and get additional hands-on practice.
Instead of being graded on learning theories and memorizing formulas, this course will be open-world, where you can use all the resources around you to solve real problems.

I love being able to share my knowledge and passion for data and about critical thinking and problem solving with everyone. This class is not a math class. It’s a data class, and we can do so much more by giving students the right tools.
Every week, I’ll assist any way I can during our virtual LiveLabs to make sure you’re properly retaining the info from the Video Lectures.

SOPHOMORE | History
I loved being introduced to a software that I previously didn't have any experience with. I could and can see practical application of this to my current job.
This has been the best class I've taken in college because I felt like I learned something useful for once.
JUNIOR | Comms
Already taken some of the tools I've learned and created a prototype dashboard for work! Looking forward to refining it and sharing the finished product!
I really liked how we used real data sets. It showed me that data analysis can be used in so many professional fields.
JUNIOR | Accounting
This course has been great! I am already using my data analysis skills for vendor management at a financial institution.
