Business Analytics iCademy

The Business Analytics iCademy has a variety of competencies that provide foundational and advanced resources to help ease the burden you face when learning data analytics. Within each competency, skills are organized based on the analytic platform that you want to learn, such as Excel, R, or Python.

While data analytics is an exciting topic, it can also be overwhelming. The skills in each competency are designed so you can complete them in a relatively short amount of time, on your schedule, and at your own pace.
