    Learn the foundation of how to apply advanced analytics skills to complex data analysis and modes. You’ll build an understanding of design, data analytics tools, and advanced analytics translators to communicate complex data-related requirements between data engineers, business, and IT stakeholders.

    The course examines four major areas; the momentum gains in the data and analytics revolution; the five elements of successful data analytics transformation; the mapping value in data ecosystems, and data analysis; the models of distribution.

  • Cybersecurity Leadership

    Explore how our hyperconnected world, comprised of a myriad of networks – both machine and human – has brought us to the precipice of a fundamental revolution and redefinition of the human experience and our socio-political and military world order. Crime, news, and even warfare is digital today.

"To be a good product manager doesn't mean you need to be an expert in UI/UX. It just means you need to be familiar, not only with the discipline, but also with the vernacular and how to communicate with other stakeholders. In order to create a great design system, you have to be able to research and understand who are the end users of that piece of technology."

Dr Troy Abel, Visiting Professor, Nexford University
