SQL for Business Analysts

The Quick and Easy Way to Get the Information You Need from a Database

Ever wondered ...

how to extract insights from a database without programming? Sometimes waiting for an IT person to pull the data you need is just not acceptable. This course will teach you the fundamentals of how to retrieve that data yourself, without programming.

Organizations of all kinds maintain databases. SQL is the language used to communicate with databases. You should have a working knowledge of SQL because it's a skill that will advance your career if you deal with data at all. Knowledge of SQL is a requirement for many business analyst jobs.

This is an interactive, hands-on course that will have you crafting SQL queries of your own right after we cover a few basics. Those queries will deliver the information you want, and do it quickly.

"Mr. Taylor – I thought your course was great! I also have your “SQL for Dummies” publication. SQL is not like riding a bike at least at this stage for me. It requires consistent practice and real-world application, over-time.

Your online course was a giant step forward & an excellent source of clarity on the topic, as well as a tremendous reference on into the future…Thank you again.

"I really liked the class. It covered the basics but went deep enough to get me started on what I needed to do...

Thanks--it was well worth my time."

- Amy Aquila., Business Analyst, Epiq Systems

"I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for such an excellent class! I found that I was taking too many classes (5 of them at one time) and didn't find the time to post my assignments in the discussion areas, although I did the assignments and read the lessons.

Thank you very much!"

Personal Letter from Allen Taylor

SQL has been the cornerstone of my career for many years and is just as relevant now as it has ever been. I'm sure knowledge of SQL will be valuable to you, as it has been for me. I enjoy taking a technical topic and translating it into terms that anyone can understand. Thousands of students have learned the basics of SQL in other courses that I have taught, but in this course I will delve deeper and guide you through a hands-on experience that will give you the power to home in on exactly the information you want that is stored in your database.
