Successful business strategies depend on understanding data.
But not everyone ‘speaks data’, and without data-literate leaders, even the best data teams can struggle to apply their insights to business.
RMIT Online’s Graduate Certificate in Data Science has been created to help business professionals gain the critical foundations in data wrangling, programming, analytics and visualisation that employers are demanding now.
You can also choose to continue your studies into the Master of Data Science Strategy and Leadership, which will develop your skills as a senior leader in data science and analytics.
