As technology continues to play a larger role in the day-to-day operations of organizations, businesses have access to more data than ever, and understanding that data is crucial to improving operations. With the LSU Online & Continuing Education Tableau Business and Data Analytics Specialist Certificate program, students will master statistical analysis of real-world data, as well as understand data management and visualization tools such as SQL and Tableau.
