Let's talk about the Rasmussen University Data Analytics program.

I'm Jen Ayotte, assistant vice president of undergraduate education.

Students in the Data Analytics program learn to explore and apply data analytics principles in courses that use industry-standard tools. This helps students build valuable career skills.

Businesses and organizations rely on data to make decisions. To do that, they need employees who know how to gather and process data effectively.

Whether the goal is increasing revenue, controlling processes, managing risk or reducing expenses, if an organization has data, an analyst can help.

The best data analysts have a mix of analytical and communication skills. They need to provide analyses, recommend changes, collaborate with others and get others’ support.

Our online courses are built to provide theory and practice that integrates all of these skills. Assignments are designed to mirror realistic work scenarios like those you will see in your career.

Our instructors work in the field and hold regular live classroom sessions where you can ask questions and learn from their expertise. You'll have plenty of support along the way.
