We go way beyond that: We make sure that you are job and market-ready. This means assuring that you have the skills to be able to work, collaborate and quickly contribute to any tech team (in addition to being a great coder, of course) 🚀

Schedule – a typical week in our part-time program

Our part-time data analysis course will equip the students with the requisite skills to future-fit professions across the globe.

Tuesdays and Thursdays
from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Weekdays are all about content. We start at 6:30 sharp with an engaging & interactive lecture, before putting what you've learnt into practice with paired programming challenges.

Saturdays
from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm

Weekends are all about practice. Pair up with your buddy for the day, and work on a series of programming challenges with the help of our teaching staff.

Phase 1 - Python Basics

2 weeks
First steps in programming using Python, a general-purpose language with a readable syntax and the go-to language for data analysis, with no prerequisites.

Phase 2 - Databases

2 weeks
In a data-driven world, SQL is the standard language for relational database management. During this module, participants will learn most of the topics required for the usage of SQL in their work. They will use it to query a Relational database and retrieve information from it. Cloud providers (Amazon, Microsoft, Google) offer easy access to large data storage, processing, and analytics for companies which data will grow over time--probably, exponentially. This module is also an introduction to the main players for awareness, and a first practice into using the Google Suite, for analysing 10+ Billion records fast.

Phase 3 - Excel

1 week
The use of MS Office is widespread in all industries, and almost all big and small businesses use it in their day-to-day functioning. This module will provide practise in conducting basic spreadsheet operations and functions, as well as the construction of Pivot Tables and Charts. It is designed to give everyone a working knowledge of Excel with the aim of getting to use it for more advance topics later.

Phase 4 - PowerQuery and PowerBI

1 week
This Business Intelligence module brings Big Data together in one place: CSV files, SQL databases, or other cloud-based connectors (Google analytics, Salesforce...) are used to extract our data. We will first learn how to user PowerQuery for wrangling and cleaning the data. Then we will practice in answering critical business questions by producing interactive visualisations, producing reports. While in comparison Excel starts to slow down when dealing with large models, Power BI is optimised to deal with tables in excess of 100 million records without breaking a sweat.

Phase 5 - Mathematics essentials

2 weeks
Data Analysts must understand the underlying math behind all the libraries and models used in the field. With this module, students will be more comfortable with the basic concepts of statistics & probabilities (mean, variance, random variable, Bayes’s Theorem, etc.).

Phase 6 - Decision Science consulting project

2,5 weeks
In this first project, groups of students will have to solve a business challenge from a Brazilian online marketplace founded in 2015. Their first "client"! Groups will analyse the data set provided and follow a methodology we outline. Since Data analysts are meant to communicate their findings to non-technical audiences, each group must explain all their technical insights and turn them into business decisions using cost/benefits analysis.

Phase 7 - Final project and Demo Day

2,5 weeks
With this last module, students practice again on how to collaborate efficiently with an open-ended data analysis project. It will be a great way to practice all the tools, techniques and methodologies covered in the past and it will make them realise how autonomous they have become.

Phase 8 - Career coaching

1 week
In this module, students get ready for interviews using our career playbook, then receive help to meet with the best recruiters in the region. We also love to involve our course alumni as mentors, to share their experiences with fresh graduates: they explain step by step how they found their job as a Data Analyst!
