Since 2011, General Assembly has transformed tens of thousands of careers through pioneering, experiential education in today’s most in-demand skills. As featured in The Economist, Wired, and The New York Times, GA offers training in web development, data, design, business, and more, both online and at campuses around the world. Our global professional community boasts 40,000 full- and part-time alumni — and counting.
In addition to fostering career growth for individuals, GA helps employers cultivate top tech talent and spur innovation by transforming their teams through strategic learning. More than 21,000 employees at elite companies worldwide have honed their digital fluency with our corporate training programs. GA has also been recognized as one of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, and Fast Company has dubbed us leaders in World-Changing Ideas and the #1 Most Innovative Company in Education.
This is unique opportunity to work with GA as we deliver a custom, 10-week part-time program to one of our enterprise clients, a high-profile technology/data company. In this program, senior leaders from our partner will be “hand-selected” as part of this initiative. Through this training, they will learn and practice turning real-world datasets into actionable, data-driven insights they can communicate; post-training, these leaders will bring their skills/ideas back to their teams to help drive a internal shift toward automation and predictive analysis across the organization.
We will be using Excel, SQL, Qlik Sense, and Python as the primary tools for analysis, and are looking for a seasoned data professional to lead this learning experience. We will provide a core curriculum, along with other instructor resources like slides, exercises, and datasets.
