About

Using common analytics software and tools, statistical and machine learning methods, and data-intensive computing and visualization techniques, learners of the Analytics - Essential Tools and Methods MicroMasters Program at the The Georgia Institute of Technology - GTx will gain the experience necessary to integrate all of these parts for maximum impact.

Project experience is also included as part of the MicroMasters program. Through these projects, learners will hone their skills with data collection, storage, analysis, and visualization tools, as well as gain instincts for how and when each tool should be used.

These projects provide hands-on experience with real-world business applications of analytics and a deeper understanding of how to apply analytics skills to make the biggest difference.
