Consort Institute at Emory University
I landed a position as a BI Analyst/Tableau Developer (I had
no Tableau experience prior to the program). I firmly believe
that the skills I acquired through the program and Emory’s
strong reputation within the data community played a
significant role in my successful transition -- but you must
also network within the various industry professional groups
and associations to make it all happen.
I just wanted to update you -- I was previously in the
Business Intelligence certificate program. I recently accepted
an offer as a Logistics Analyst with a Fortune 500 company and
a 40% increase in compensation. The knowledge I picked up in
the BI program greatly helped make this transition possible!
Emory’s Business Intelligence program gave me the self-service
BI skills used to transform raw data into actionable insight
for improved decision-making through the creation of
dashboards and visualization charts, and production of
analytics reports. In October 2017, I began my position at
Kaiser Permanente as a Business Intelligence Consultant.
Completing this course was a huge step in making this career
I was at a career crossroads until one day I stumbled upon
some information about the Business Intelligence program at
Emory Continuing Education. After a few conversations with the
program advisor and further research, I decided to invest in
my future and enroll. Doing so is one of the best decisions I
have ever made. I am now equipped with skills that allow me to
be competitive in the job market, I can continue to attend
classes and refresh on content whenever I want – at no
additional cost. Now I have the continued support of the Emory
team as I work to further my career in the field of data
analytics. Seize the opportunity for a life-changing
I have started working as a Performance Improvement Analyst --
I met the hiring manager at the Emory ATUG Meeting. More
importantly, my Tableau and Excel experience has helped me
with the interview. This Business Inteliigence program has
been a really rewarding and transformative experience, and I
could not have achieved this without your support.
I cannot thank you enough for putting together the Business
Intelligence program. I profited quite a bit from all my
classes: Excel, MySQL and the Tableau training session. I
gained experience that I will take with me everywhere I go.
For example: I had issues with some reports at work until I
attended the Business Intelligence class at Emory --
everything makes sense to me now.
I am able to understand patterns, data relationships, DAX,
matrix, cubes much better than before. This is a big plus for
me and for my career achievements. Thanks!
