A mini-capstone project at the end of every module helps candidates internalize their understanding of the content consumed. Our coursework and practical assignments are designed to enable candidates to apply what they have learned during self-study and industry sessions. Data sets are provided along with the course content so that participants can follow along with the instructor, get hands on practice and build their skills in Analytics tools.
