Learn a powerful framework to understand data, from exploring and managing data sets to performing analysis and communicating insights. Following the data, rather than hunches, enables individuals and companies to make better decisions. You’ll go hands-on with everything from spreadsheet modelling to visualization tools and build a final all-inclusive project with your new skills.
What You’ll Learn
Approaching data the right way: If you approach a problem with a solution in mind already, you’ll convince yourself it’s right and ignore other possibilities. Avoid this and other common pitfalls by adopting a rigorous analytical workflow.
Exploring data for insights: Your business collects a lot of data, but how do you navigate and understand it? Learn how to explore data in Excel and identify the right questions to ask.
Managing data in SQL: Some of the most valuable insights can come from seeing data update in real-time. Learn how to interact with databases and query them for valuable information.
Sharing your insights: Walking through your analysis step-by-step may not be the best way to share a critical finding. Learn how to visualize and present the outcomes of your analysis to stakeholders.

This course offers high-quality information and tools to start a new career, and important advice is to concentrate all your energies and time on the time frame of this course because if you are not fully into it you go to throw your money. This is not like college that you have a lot of time, all the information and work is very condensed and you need to work on the go every day.
How do I secure my spot in a course?
To ensure all GA students get the individual attention and resources they need to succeed, course sizes are limited. After submitting their applications, students connect with an admissions rep, who determines whether or not the course is a fit for their experience and goals. Additionally, applicants for our full-time Immersives complete admissions assessments to ensure they are prepared for the rigor of the curriculum. Once you’ve been accepted and have put down your initial down payment, your spot in the course is secure. Request a course package to learn more.
Do you offer payment plan options?
We understand these courses are a significant financial investment, so we provide several options to ease tuition payment. After submitting a down payment to save your spot in the course, you can choose the installment plan that’s best for you. Additionally, we work with financing partners to offer low-cost loan options for eligible students. Another fun fact: More than 45% of our part-time students receive tuition reimbursement for their GA education via employer sponsorship.
I’m an absolute beginner with zero experience or knowledge in the subject matter you teach (e.g., web development, digital marketing). Are your courses still for me?
Many of our long-form courses are geared toward beginners and no prior knowledge of a subject is required. Additionally, these courses often feature pre-work assignments to get you up to speed with essential concepts and tools. Inevitably, our courses attract students with a wide variety of backgrounds and expertise, so we make sure to have instructional associates, office hours, and additional help available as needed to provide personalized feedback and support.
Besides the hours spent in class each week, how much time do I need to dedicate to a course outside of the classroom?
It varies by course and by person, but, as a part-time student, be prepared to work hard and dedicate several hours outside of the classroom each week to review course material and complete homework assignments. Our full-time Immersive students also devote additional time to portfolio projects, networking events with hiring partners, career services support, and more. Either way, our courses are designed to be rigorous and intensive, but, most of all, incredibly rewarding!
What if I really want to take a GA course but just can’t afford it?
Good news: You’ve got options. More than 45% of our part-time students receive tuition assistance from their employers. Ask your local Admissions rep for information to share with your manager about our courses and the benefits they can provide your company. We also work with financing partners to offer low-cost loan options for eligible students.
What is your cancellation and refund policy?
GA’s campuses are governed by location-specific regulatory standards that we must comply with regarding refunds. For this reason, our refund policy varies based on your location while taking a GA course. Request a course package to learn more.
What will the Remote Immersive experience be like?
We know it can be hard to focus while learning online. Given the number of real-life and online distractions that may keep you from your work, we’ve designed course activities that keep you engaged and in constant conversations with your fellow classmates, instructors, and instructional associates. Our lessons are broken up into micro-lectures, which introduce content in short spurts. You’ll then work individually, in pairs, or in groups to apply what you’ve learned. We also encourage students to interact independently so they can get to know one another better and build a sense of community.
