Udemy and Coursera are a good place to look for trainings. Obviously they come at a price and only provide training without actual experience (that truly counts in job applications). But stuff like this is specially built for entry level jobs so might be helpful:

it is more than one course though
one course isn't going to be enough to get you any work

Thank you! On that note, how do you think that broad Python program compares against this program and this program?

Sorry for all these questions!

Since you already have the academic background I would recommend you to audit some coursera courses like


  • Google's Data Analytics Certificate

  • IBM Data analytics Certificate


The main difference being that Google uses R for programming and IBM Python, I personally will learn both just in case but I think the industry standard is becoming Python.

I recommend Introduction to Data Analytics and IBM Data Analyst Professional Certificate. Besides, I also recommend using one more platform StrataScratch for practicing.

I think you've made a positive step by taking an excel & SQL course, they are certainly some of the core tools for an analyst role.

I think given the breadth of free educational content online that you don't need to go back to school if you don't want to.

Perhaps check out, it has some courses backed by top universities and/or tech firms such like IBM & Google - (This one may be of interest). I believe you can complete the course content for free, but then you can pay to receive a certificate at the end if you'd like.

If I could add some traits and additional tools that would be worth, in my view checking out (most of which are covered in the course linked above) which will stand you in good stead for taking a data role I'd say;

  • SQL (get familiar with the basics; join types, data types, window functions, group by etc.)
  • A data visualisation Tool (Tableau, Power BI etc.)
  • Related to the above - how to find meaning from data & to make it easy to interpret - be familiar with identifying trends in data.
  • Some basic Python and/or R will be useful, these tools will help you identify those trends mentioned above (and a whole lot more)
  • Some foundational statistics knowledge will be useful.

It's quite a broad field so I'm probably missing a lot here. and as a final disclaimer, I've not taken a Coursera course myself, but, I've always thought that they looked quite comprehensive.

Good luck!

from the above page

Admission requirements unique to this degree.

To be considered for enrollment in this program, you must:

where do you see YOGA on that page ?

ask your enrollment counselor if one of these will get you in

This just started today:

Covers spreadsheets, SQL, R programming, and Tableau.

This is decent:

Covers Excel and Python instead of Tableau and R.

R, Python, Excel, and Tableau are all good for data analysis. If you're intending to do things like scrape websites or use the Twitter API to get tweet data I think Python would be a bit easier. R is great for statistics; some stuff just looks much simpler and more elegant than the equivalent in Python, but if you're not a professional statistician I don't think you'll notice so much.

If you want to get into any kind of development field (web/movile/games/software), start with CS50 @

If you want to get into development but CS50 proves too challenging at first, start with CS50 introductory course @

If you want less programming, you can get into Data Analytics @ Google's

or IBM's @

If you want to avoid programming altogether, you can get into Quality Assurance, there are many QA exams for which you can prepare with different courses on Udemy or even Youtube. First you'd learn Manual Testing, then you'd do Automated Testing, and so on.

There's also Cybersecurity programs and certificates, for example @ IBM's

There are also: Cloud computing, Machine Learning any many more other fields to get into. Just read up and see what you like.
