Why become a data analyst?

A job you'll love

As a data analyst, you have the satisfaction of solving complex problems and turning your ideas into reality with just your laptop. Harvard Business Review named data analysts and data scientists as “the sexiest job of the 21st century.” Data analytics was also rated in Career Karma's top 25 tech jobs in 2021.

High demand means high pay

Employers struggle to find qualified data analysts, and the demand keeps growing. The average junior data analyst salary in the United States is $51,349 per year, while senior data analysts can earn as much as $78,204.

A flexible career path

As a data analyst, you'll have the opportunity to work for startups, agencies, large corporates, on a freelance basis, or even remotely.

Data Analytics Program admission criteria

What you need:

 

The motivation to transform your career

The program requires commitment as it takes about 420 hours to complete. You should be prepared to set aside at least 15-20 hours per week to study to complete the program within 8 months. 

A computer (Mac or PC) and an internet connection. 

An interest in data analytics

If you're already reading books and blog posts about different types of analysis, that is a great start. If you are unsure if data analytics is really for you, here are some great ways to explore it:

What you don’t need:

 

A background in analytics or tech

This program is designed to take you from beginner to job-ready—regardless of your background. And now more than ever, employers see bootcamp graduates as excellent job candidates. A 2021 study by Career Karma found that companies as respected as Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft are some of the largest employers of bootcamp graduates. The same study revealed that, in 2020, those same companies hired up to 120% more bootcamps graduates than they did in 2019!

Unlimited free time

You can study part-time at 15-20 hours per week to finish the program within 8 months; or complete the program in as little as 5 months by studying up to 30-40 hours per week. 

To learn all on your own

You can enjoy the flexibility of online learning with the accountability and one-on-one attention traditionally associated with brick-and-mortar institutions. Much like a college professor might inspire you to pursue a career in a certain field, your mentor, tutor, career specialist, and student advisor will keep you motivated and on track.

FAQ

1.    Are there payment plans available?

Yes, we offer two payment options. You can save 5% of your total tuition by paying it up front. Alternatively, you can pay a set amount up front to reserve your place in the program, and the remainder in 10 monthly payments (regardless of when you graduate from the program).

Still not feasible for you? Book a call with a program advisor to see if you’re eligible for a customized payment plan.

2.    Does CareerFoundry offer full or partial scholarships?

While we do offer an ongoing tuition reduction to active U.S. military personnel and veterans, as well as periodic, partial scholarships/tuition reductions, we do not offer any full scholarships or funds at this time.

If you’d like to learn more about any of these offers, please reach out to a program advisor.

3.    Are there eligibility requirements for the job guarantee?

There are conditions that graduates need to meet in order to be eligible for the job guarantee. We’re transparent about these requirements because we want them to be easy for you to follow and because we know they genuinely help graduates succeed in their job search.

You’re eligible for the job guarantee when:

  • You’ve successfully completed 100% of your CareerFoundry program as well as our free Job Preparation course.
  • You’re applying to at least five relevant jobs a week.
  • You live in a metropolitan area with a population above 200K people in any of the following countries: USA, Canada, European Union or EFTA countries, UK, Australia, or New Zealand (or you’re willing to relocate).
  • And when you meet other qualifying criteria. Please read the full terms and conditions.

If you have any questions about the job guarantee or the eligibility criteria, simply book a call with a program advisor—they’re happy to help!

4.    Is the program 100% online?

Yes, the program is entirely asynchronous and online—so you can study when and wherever you’d like so long as you can get online and stay on track for graduation.

But this doesn’t mean the learning experience is isolated or lonely! You’ll have regular contact with your mentor, tutor, student advisor, and career specialist—as well as full access to our active student community on Slack.

5.    Do I get a certificate at the end?

You will receive a signed CareerFoundry certificate when you complete the program. This will make it easy for you to share your new qualification on LinkedIn and with potential employers or clients.

6.    What kind of job can I get after the program?

Based on the program’s comprehensive curriculum, you’ll be ready to apply for and step into a junior data analyst role or mid-level data analyst position.

Keep in mind that many job ads for data analysts ask for 2+ years of experience, but it is often part of their "wishlist" rather than a requirement.

If you have transferable skills from your previous career, it’s possible to land a more senior role. Your dedicated career specialist (during the Job Prep course) will help you understand your transferable skills and craft the right narrative to present in your job application materials.

7.    How long does the program take to complete?

The program is flexibly-paced within an 8-month duration. There are three deadlines along the way that we’ve put in place to help keep you on track for graduation.

Expect to devote a minimum of 15-20 hours per week to graduate within that maximum time frame. This is considered part-time study, and matches the default pacing of the program. If you’d like to graduate in as little as six months, you can devote 30-40 hours per week to reach that goal.

8.    Is becoming a data analyst a secure career choice?

In short, yes—there’s a high demand for qualified data analysts. In fact, World Economic Forum’s 2020 Jobs of Tomorrow report identified data analytics as one of seven high-growth emerging professions.

9.    What’s the refund policy if I change my mind?

If you’re not happy with the program in the first 14 days from the start date, you can simply cancel for a full refund.

If you are 60% or less of the way through the program duration (not including any extensions) and need to cancel for any reason, you may be eligible for a prorated refund. For more information, see our full terms and conditions.

10.    What’s included in the program tuition?

The Data Analytics Program offers you a complete career change package—including expert-authored curriculum, hands-on projects, personalized mentorship, and career coaching. Find out more here:

  • How it works: From curriculum details to your career change team, and beyond—here are the details.

In addition to all of this, you can request read access to our course library—so you can study other corners of the tech world independently, with all the course materials included in your program tuition! You can ask your student advisor about this once you start the program.

11.    What are the minimum requirements (prerequisites, system, hardware, tools)?

This program is designed with the absolute beginner in mind—so whether you’re brand new to data analytics or you’ve dabbled in it and want to formalize your knowledge and skills, this program is an excellent way to formalize your expertise and kickstart a career.

You don’t need to have experience in data or tech to succeed in this program! Regardless of your age or background, we’ve built a learning experience that will help ensure your success—from the curriculum and hands-on exercises, to the mentorship and support you’ll receive along the way.

All you need to be successful in this program is:

  • The motivation to transform your career
  • An interest in data analytics
  • Written and spoken English skills at a level B2 or higher

In addition, there are a few tools you’ll need, as well as some system/hardware requirements to be aware of. You can check out all the program details in the Data Analytics Program information sheet.

12.    Do I have to pay for the tools?

The course will require you to use Microsoft Excel—which, if you don’t already have it, you can purchase on it’s own from Microsoft for $139.99. Alternatively, you can subscribe to the entire Microsoft suite for $6.99/month.

13.    Is the program accredited and what does ZFU-approved mean?

While the program is not university accredited, it does undergo a rigorous quality assurance and certification process with the ZFU (Staatliche Zentralstelle für Fernunterricht)—the state body for distance learning in Germany.

This process ensures that the program meets a high stand for an excellent and effective learning experience.

On successful completion of this certification process, the program is assigned a unique approval number (7374920) which can be checked against a public register.

14.    What if I have a question that’s not answered here?

If you have additional questions, we’re happy to help! Just email us or book a call with a program advisor and we’ll get you the answers you need.
