Why Study Data Analyst?

As a data analyst, you will be one of the most sought-after professionals in today's job market. Through effective data analysis, you can identify problems, reduce costs and address challenges within an organisation.

The programme is tailored for people who are interested in real data and how cold, hard numbers can be used to make decisions using data from other areas of knowledge. It ensures that analysts learn to make better use of results, visualise information for non-analytical consumption, and report findings elegantly and effectively.

One-year programme also available

The first year of this two-year programme is identical to the one-year Data Analysis programme. However, you can apply directly to this two-year programme and secure a place for two years.

Career Opportunities

On completion of the programme, you will be ready for roles such as:

  • Financial analyst
  • Logistics analyst
  • Technical analyst
  • Data Analyst
  • Business intelligence analyst
  • Market research analyst
  • Python-focused junior software developer
Dataanalytikere er blant de mest ettertraktede i arbeidsmarkedet
