How can you learn more?
Who can learn business analytics?
Simply put, anyone can learn business analytics. It could also be argued that everyone involved in important decision-making, at all levels of a company, should have at least a passing knowledge of the world of data analytics.
Even if business data analysis isn’t part of your job description, learning the fundamentals of this massively important field can provide you and your company with a host of benefits. It’s never too late to learn the basics.
If you feel out of your comfort zone when fellow team members are discussing business analytics, why not consider retraining or upskilling? You could soon be harnessing the power of data and coming up with that all-important solution.
How do you pursue a career in business analytics?
There are a number of different ways to start your journey in business analytics. If you’re looking to jump straight in, then consider entry-level positions listed on job ad websites. Another option is to do some work experience or look into an internship. However, voluntary work is not financially possible for everyone.
Before applying for a job, it might be wise to consider studying a free Springboard course at Galway Business School. This government-funded part-time scheme is the ideal way to upskill and kickstart your career in data.
