What qualifications does it take?

Those who have used programmes such as R, SPSS or MATLAB during the undergraduate or postgraduate programmes are sought after. However, it is possible to enter the field of Insight and Analytics with a Marketing degree if you have been exposed to data and analytics in a commercial setting. A popular route into becoming a Digital Analyst is a digital marketing background (e.g. Digital Marketing Executive) where you have the underpinning understanding of paid media performance, social media, conversion rate optimisation and Google Analytics. This is then built upon with the data analysis skills.
