Looking for an Education in Digital Analytics?
The DAA, together with UBC and UC Irvine offer two educational opportunities in Digital Analytics.
UBC/DAA Award of Achievement in Digital Analytics
The program emphasizes critical thinking and discovery through creating insights from the data generated by digital analytics reporting tools. The program's content is provided by the Education Committee of the DAA.
- Introduction to Web Analytics
- Web Analytics for Site Optimization
- Measuring Marketing Campaigns Online
- Creating and Managing the Analytical Business Culture
Experience with a reporting tool is recommended before taking the courses, as the curriculum does not address the "hands on" elements of working with a specific tool.

What do the students think?
"It's been amazing to have such a comprehensive set of information and know that it's from the best folks" Shaina Boone
"I wanted to reach out to thank the DAA leadership, particularly those that shaped the education program with the UBC and the certification program, for helping me change my career-- and frankly—my life. I was working as a web analyst at a leading internet company, where I had been for almost 10 years. I will always be grateful for what I learned there and the people I worked with, but it was time for a change and I wasn't sure where to go next. However, I had no idea how – or the confidence – to take the skills I had out on the market.
Thanks to the DAA/UBC courses, as well as attending an eMetrics conference, I gained confidence that the experience I had was transferable and I could see the opportunities in the industry. I signed up to 'test the test' for the DAA certification at eMetrics, took it cold, and was surprised and pleased to learn that I had scored quite well. By meeting other web analysts and starting to network, I realized that we shared most of the same challenges and frustrations." Elizabeth Brady
"I've learned how to cut through the noise in the data, and read the story in the trends and numbers. I've learned how to make better business decisions." Zhenya Beck
"My most valuable learning came from the online discussions. In each course, there are like-minded analysts from a variety of industries with very worthwhile insights and experience." Elaine Xu
