Data Analytics Academy

Empowered and Inspired to Innovate!

New world, new skills

Data literacy is essential to how we conduct business and deliver value. Information generated from the data is the ultimate asset in modern organizations. Employees need to understand data and communicate insights effectively.

The ability to ‘understand and speak data’ has become foundational in most day-to-day jobs. Preparing our people for the ‘future of work’ means - no one gets left behind. Unfortunately, over 80% of CEOs worldwide face an analytical skills shortage that cripples operational efficiency, impede innovation, and result in ever-increasing costs.

PwC is committed to digital upskilling, for ourselves and our clients. Therefore, we have developed the Data Analytics Academy - driving the adoption of new tools and work methods, cultivating a change in mindset and embedding a culture of innovation.

Meaningful transformation starts with our people. Our ability to remain successful in a digital era will not depend on the skill level of our most advanced employees. It will depend on our ability to cultivate an inspired, innovative and data literate majority.
