Require advice on Data Analytics!

Hi guys,

I am interested to learn more about Data Analytics but I am not sure which part-time course to sign up for. Purpose of learning;

>To prepare myself for managerial roles which requires (or at least good to have) Python/ SQL skills with knowledge on Data Visualization tools and data modelling. I am referring to more "business-y" / commercial roles rather than full-fledged Data Analyst roles.

>I want to be good at it and be able to perform these tasks at a professional level and make data-driven business decisions but yet not too technical like what you would expect from a Data Scientist with a masters degree.

Should I be looking at short 2-3 months courses by Hackwagon or General Assembly or more in-depth / comprehensive ones by NYP or SP (Specialist diploma in data analytics). Open to other recommendations too (but not too expensive ones pls )

Keep hustling and stay safe!

I have seen the course content of both schools you mentioned, and General Assembly's course is definitely better in terms of quality and content.

However, if you are not in a rush, there is another up-and-coming school: Heicoders Academy. But now disclaimer first, this school is run by a friend of mine. But the reason I am willing to stick my neck out for them is because I have seen the materials, and they have top people in Silicon Valley & Ivy League who worked on the curriculum, so its definitely relevant.

Check them out so that you can make an informed decision!

Hi, can I ask if data science courses in Mages Institute is good? I understand that they have career support and will assist in finding jobs upon graduation.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Mages specialises in game design and development, I don't think they really have the instructors with the requisite experience to teach data science properly. So even though they claim to have a career program, I really wouldn't recommend it.

If you ask me, Either GA (they have some brilliant instructors: Go google Misrab GA), or Heicoders Academy (their instructors are professional Data scientists from companies like Rakuten etc)
