Learn Data Analysis for Business

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 & Data Analytics 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.

This certificate is made up of four MicroCred® programs, and courses in this certificate program can either be taken individually or taken together as a bundle. This certificate is made in collaboration with Tableau, so not only will students earn a professional development certificate and badge from a flagship university, but they will also have the Tableau name to prove their expertise.


MicroCred® instructor Melinda Stallings explains the importance of being able to show off your skills in a digital format when looking for a job.
