Both the pace and content suit participants with zero prior knowledge. The class is well-guided by instructors who are extremely knowledgeable, effective and patient. The combination of theoretical and hands-on practice enables me to reconcile with how and why analytics are the way they are.Benjamin Ng, Principal Engineer
The practical case studies, rigour coursework and quality of lecturers are impressive. With this course, I’m able to switch to an analytics job function and subsequently pursue higher learning in business analytics. My course mates have also found analytics roles in banking and healthcare sectors.Timothy Ow, Business Analytics Lead
I’m glad that I’ve managed to stumble across this course while researching for data-related courses locally. With the generous fee subsidies and grants, the course is not only value for money but has certainly helped me to acquire the necessary foundations in analytical tools and techniques.Koh Shao Cong, Data Analytics Trainee
Although it has been a tough learning journey, I’ve picked up several skills, learnt new technologies, made some good friends and learnt together with them throughout this journey. An excellent choice!Tan Wee Koon, Head of a SME
Joining this programme had been one of the best decisions in my life. Data analytics is not an easy field by itself, a structured course with good content and delivery is harder to come by. For those contemplating a course in Data Analytics, look no further, this is one of the best courses you will find; value for money and me. In fact, before the end of the programme, I applied and was offered a data analytics internship with a financial institution, despite no prior experiences in both areas. This programme changed my life!Barbara Yam, Data Analytics Trainee
