Data continues to become a growing part of businesses across industries, but presenting it in a way that makes sense to a wide variety of people can be difficult. Tableau is an interactive data visualization software that makes it easy to simplify raw data into understandable visuals. Learn the fundamentals of using Tableau Desktop in the context of business and data analytics through the LSU Online & Continuing Education Tableau MicroCred® program. Students will create and design both static and dynamic tables, data visualizations, dashboards, and stories while incorporating visual design best practices to better communicate insights to the intended audience, such as business stakeholders.
This MicroCred® is part of the LSU Tableau Business & Data Analytics Certificate program.
