Introduction to Data analytics

Statistics can tell us much more than ‘who, what, and where’. Data analysts understand that numbers tell us stories about ‘why’ and ‘how’. As specialists, they uncover insights that can be used to find opportunities in just about any industry, from finance and health to law and criminal justice.

If you see yourself in this role, you can compare courses for working in data analytics right here on Open Universities Australia. These courses are delivered online by leading universities. We can advise you on everything to do with enrolling, including entry requirements, fees and flexible study options.
