Professional Diploma in Analytics & AI

In response to requests from Member Organisations, we have developed this Professional Diploma to afford participants a deeper understanding of the power and potential of Data Analytics, AI and other advanced technologies. Participants will learn how Data Science is transforming our lives – in business, in Government and in society as a whole.

Our next Live course commences September 13th 2023.

Who's it for?

This Diploma is suited to non-technical professionals seeking to gain a broader understanding of the world of data, how it can be used provide business value and who wish to understand the application of data for business and societal purposes.

Practitioner-led Training

We believe the best learning comes from those who have developed their skills, knowledge and experience working with many of the top companies in the world. Our lecturers have been carefully chosen for their reputation as leaders in their chosen fields. 

This is a fast changing industry with new approaches, techniques and technologies emerging every year. Learn from experts who are at the coalface, applying these technologies on a daily basis.

Two Flexible Learning Options

The programme has been developed to allow you to choose the way you want to learn.

Live Weekly Sessions

Learn remotely through live weekly lectures delivered through the Zoom Webinars platform. This is a twelve week programme consisting of nine lectures, every Wednesday from 4-6pm and three weeks to complete the assignment. 

Live lectures allow for class participation and Q&A sessions with each lecturer. They are recorded so that, if you miss a lecture, the recording will be available for one week after the lecture to allow you to catch up at a time that suits you.

Self-paced Online Learning

Learn remotely in your own time and on your own schedule. All nine sessions have been professionally recorded and uploaded to our dedicated learning platform. Recordings with accompanying slides can be watched and downloaded at a time that suits you allowing you to complete the course in a timeframe that suits your schedule. 

Each session is followed by a short MCQ to check your knowledge.


Upon completion of either Option 1 or 2, you will also be asked to provide a book review of a leading analytics publication and a 1500 word essay, after which you will be awarded the Professional Diploma in Data Analytics & AI from the Analytics Institute. If you have yet to become a Member of the Institute, you will then be able to apply for Membership at a reduced fee.
