Course Overview

The course will address disciplines across the spectrum of Data Management and is aimed at people looking to start developing their knowledge in this field.

Why Data Management?

I think we can all agree that over the last few years the world has turned on its head and with that, the importance and benefits of data knowledge.   The world is now realising the importance of treating data as an asset!
For businesses the practice of data management has become more and more a priority since the introduction of BCBS239 and GDPE et al but also given the unprecedented increase in use of data throughout the last couple of years through the pandemic. This course will look to cover the practice of collecting, storing, organising, protecting, verifying, and processing data.

  • The average Data Analyst salary in Ireland is € 50 000 per year
  • Career openings in Data Management are projected to increase by 11% between 2018 and 2028
