We'll start with a deep dive into Excel's most powerful analytics tools (PivotTables, Power Query, Power Pivot & DAX), then shift into Power BI to design and publish a full-scale data model and dashboard from the ground up.

Next, we'll explore Tableau Desktop, one of the world's most popular data visualization platforms, and learn how to transform data into stunning, interactive dashboards.

Finally we'll cover one of the most versatile and practical database languages (MySQL), and learn how to build, manage and explore databases by applying SQL to unique, real-world projects and case studies.
