Data Analyst

Data Analyst

OVERVIEW

A data analyst is a person who uses huge amounts of data to analyze, present, and forecast future events in order to aid in the making of data-driven decisions. They get the raw data and present it in a meaningful way that would both make the information clear and be more useful for making decisions.

The MCIT Data Analyst program assists you in developing strong database foundations, learning SQL programming, R, and Python, creating data visualizations and reporting using programs like Power BI and Tableau, and applying statistics and predictive analytics in a business context.

For Data analysts, over the period 2019-2028, new job openings (arising from expansion demand and replacement demand) are expected to total 18,000, while 16,700 new jobseekers (arising from school-leavers, immigration and mobility) are expected to be available to fill them. The labour shortage conditions seen in recent years are expected to continue over the projection period.
