Graduate Professionally Prepared
Responsible and Ethical Analytics
You will learn how to identify and mitigate sources of bias in your work. More data and complex models are not always better. You will be able to discuss this issue in real-world case studies from fintech, to healthcare, to criminal justice.
Statistics and Mathematics
Understand the applications and real-world relevance of statistical and mathematical techniques, alongside the underlying theory. Learn why simple, transparent, and explainable analysis and modelling techniques are preferred over complex but opaque ones.

Which format should I take this data analytics bootcamp in – on campus or online?
It’s up to you! Our Remote courses offer a learning experience that mirrors GA’s on-campus offerings but allow you to learn from the comfort of home.
