About This Path

This path is about bringing your data to LIFE, with project-based courses featuring some of the most popular data visualization platforms, including Excel, Power BI and Tableau.

We'll start with Thinking Like an Analyst, a crash course designed to help you build a strong foundation for a successful career in data.

Next we'll review key data viz best practices, explore 20+ common chart templates, and introduce some of the most powerful techniques for visualizing and formatting data using Microsoft Excel.

From there we’ll shift gears into Power BI Desktop, where we’ll build an entire data model and dashboard from the ground up. You'll learn how to bring your data to life with tree maps, gauges, KPI cards, slicers, parameters, and AI-driven visuals like key influencers and decomposition trees.

Finally we'll dive into one of the world's most popular data visualization platforms: Tableau Desktop. Using a hands-on and project-based approach, we'll transform raw data into stunning, interactive reports and dashboards.
