Few words about our Digital Academy

It is a project filled with information and practical experience. During this time you will learn the fundamentals and be able to apply for a junior position in the area of data analysis as a Junior BI analyst or Junior analyst in a marketing sales department. Important: the whole Academy is held in Czech language.

Digital Academy is a several-week long requalification course and a mentoring program for 30 future data analysts (20 % of mothers after maternity leave and 20 % of fresh university graduates). The goal of the Academy is to educate new talents and in a co-operation with local companies to find them jobs on positions that are focused on data (data analysts, reporting, visualisation, digital marketing, coding or testing). Academy takes place two times per every year in Prague, Brno and starting in 2018 in Ostrava as well. After undertaking theoretical education at our Academy, passing final test and performing a presentation of their project women receive a certification at the final graduation evening.
