Selected major: Data Analytics
Having data is one thing, understanding its meaning and value is quite another.
It’s the data analysts who provide the insights and intelligence that are used to drive business.
The data analyst can tell you about customer behaviour; benchmarks for measuring performance; how your business could be more efficient; how different scenarios may play out.
In short, data analysts draw evidence from data to spot and explain trends, and help businesses make the best strategic decisions.
