Your journey to become a Data Analyst
Take a deep dive into the world of Data Analysis. The live sessions are designed as practical and interactive as possible. You will learn by applying your newly acquired data analysis skills in smaller group projects with your classmates, supported by the experts.
Introduction, Use Cases & Industry Requirements
After the first module you will know the terms, principles, norms, standards & industry requirements of usability. You will understand the importance of data-driven approaches and business data analysis between innovation and business and understand how « data handling » affects entire business ecosystems and corporate structures.
Ad Hoc Data Analytics
In the second module you will learn how to approach ad hoc data analysis, i.e. any business report or data analysis that is curated and created by users whenever they need it. Ad-hoc analysis in Business Intelligence is in stark contrast to the managed reports from the early days of business analytics, which were based on templates distributed by IT and business departments.
Module 3 & 4
After these modules you will know how data analysis works, i.e. the science of examining raw data with a specific goal in mind in order to draw conclusions and make recommendations for action. The topic of Data Analytics is used in many companies and different industries. You will learn how to verify or falsify models and hypotheses based on data. With the advent of data analysis software in companies, the term analytics has become more and more common. It is used to collect information from data to support decisions in a company (at different levels).
Module 5 & 6
This module teaches how Business Intelligence (BI) is the key driver in many aspects for most companies in today’s world. It is a technology-driven process for analyzing data and presenting actionable information that not only helps executives, managers and other end users make informed business decisions, but also drives the analysis of business data as a fact-finding component in many ways.
In this module you will learn how data environments and the journey of a data set work from start to finish. Usually, once the data has been entered into the system, it is ready to be imported into a database. From here, the data set can be analyzed over time and across different locations. This module demonstrates and teaches how to aggregate data and create indicators to drive business. In this way, the database acts as a central repository, often representing an environment such as « Data Warehouse (DWH) » or « Data Lakes » within companies.
Data Governance & Best Practices
The last module covers the overall management of the availability, usability, integrity and security of data used in an organization in connection with data analysis. It provides business considerations to combine and recapitulate previous modules. The module will show how business data analysts with a holistic knowledge base can drive and lead data-driven digitisation and innovation in SMEs, but also in large companies.

I feel like the Talent Garden Innovation School is so different and special because they really give importance and pay attention to the students and our professional growth.
Giulia, Talent Garden Innovation School Alumna
The weeks at Talent Garden Innovation School were super intense: theoretical and practical lessons, the realization of a group project with a partner company and a personal project that I worked night and day on in the last two weeks. But they have also been amazing weeks: night-time dinners, organized events on campus and foosball matches during breaks. I also had the opportunity to
experience a trip experience: 5 days of full immersion, useful for getting to know important international companies and improving my skills in the field. I can't even count how many cool people I met during this journey.
Tommaso, Talent Garden Innovation School Alumnus
A perspective on the education that I wouldn’t otherwise get. Maybe I can also cooperate with Talent Garden or with some of the companies that we got to know here to actually become more professional in the way we are doing things.
Innovative spaces, the rooms, the people, and the whole information that gets transferred. I think it’s a really really good approach for people in our creative industry to get to know a lot of different things and new technologies.
It’s a perfect combination of so many aspects that provides a lot of chances for young people, especially students or newcomers in this whole working world. It is just the right thing for people who love challenges.
It's a perfect way to learn A LOT in a very short time. So if you want to skip university, just go to Talent Garden Innovation School. I also like that it's a new way of learning and studying and not old fashioned university style.
I really enjoyed and loved the course. I'm really sad it's over. It was such a great experience and I grew so much as a person in the best possible way. Talent Garden gave me so much and I really found myself in this course. The experts and the content was awesome and I feel like I have learned so much and feel very equipped for the job market. Thank you much for everything and organising all the events and just creating such a great experience for us.
State of the art contents, great teachers, good place to learn, dedication from Talent Garden, practical knowledge that you can apply immediately.
I would recommend this course to anyone I know and care about. It was a great experience and I learned so much, even though I didn't think it would be possible in such a short amount of time. Talent Garden Vienna is such a lovely, warm but professional place, it's just great to spend every day here.

[German] Wie viele andere technische Berufe ist die Data Science-Branche derzeit von Männern dominiert. Laut der neuesten Ausgabe des O’Reilly’s Women in Data Report sind gerade einmal 26% der DatenwissenschaftlerInnen Frauen. Angesichts des Mangels an qualifizierten Fachkräften ist die Zeit für Frauen ideal, sich für diese lukrativen Stellen zu qualifizieren.

[German] Die digitale Transformation ist eines der aktuellsten Themen in Unternehmen. Über sie wird im Internet, auf Konferenzen, in Workshops oder Meetings heiß diskutiert. Doch nicht alle Unternehmen oder Marken sind bereit für diesen notwendigen Prozess, der die Unternehmensorganisation und traditionelle Strategien innoviert.
[German] Jeder spricht über Digital Transformation, doch immer noch sind uns viele Begriffe, die damit zusammenhängen, nicht ganz klar. Um dem Abhilfe zu schaffen, haben wir ein Mini-Wörterbuch mit Begriffen der Digital Transformation vorbereitet, um endlich auch mit dem Chief Digital Officer mehr als Smalltalk führen zu können.
