About This Event

Due to the current health concerns, all GA programs will temporarily be held online - including this one.

Registered participants will be notified 24 hours in advance with information on how to log in to the Zoom meeting room and other tools needed for the workshop. Registration will close 2 hours prior to the start time in order to allow participants ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.

Data drives decisions; are you part of the conversation around data?

Regardless of your industry or role, fluency in the language of data analytics will allow you to contribute to data driven decision making. This online workshop will put you in the driver’s seat to understand, analyze, and interpret data so you too can join the data conversation.

In this online introductory workshop, you’ll learn to ask the right questions of your data, while learning basic analytic functionality in Google Sheets. Your newfound data analytic skills will be applied to real-world datasets, allowing you to develop recommendations based on your findings.

Chart your own career path. Pick up where this workshop leaves off. Learn the fundamentals of data tools like Excel, SQL, and Tableau in 10 weeks in our part-time, on-campus Data Analytics workshop or online in our mentor-driven Data Analysis Circuit.
