Available Skills iCademies

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.

Leadership Skills iCademy

Leadership is more than just a title - it's a mental model for creating value at work. Leaders are everywhere. Leaders need to work effectively and ethically with others to manage processes and solve problems.

Being an effective and ethical leader requires practice. The purpose of the Leadership Skills iCademy is to provide foundational knowledge of various skills required to be a good leader, and to introduce you to actions you can take to develop leadership habits. Improving leadership skills is more than just learning some new frameworks; it's a process of experimentation, reflection, and growth.
