Presentation and objectivesThe International University of Andalusia has supported the holding of different activities and specialization courses within its non-regulated training offer, and together with the University of Huelva it became one of the pioneer universities in offering postgraduate training specialized in analysis of data –the Master and Doctorate program in Economics, Finance and Computing– to whose faculty belong some of the most significant specialists in data analysis in the country. This team forms a multidisciplinary working group that teaches more than ten courses on analysis techniques using STATA, within the framework of the program.
With this background, we are given the opportunity to expand, coordinate and integrate the offer made by the participating institutions, and expand it thanks to the collaboration of Timberlake (who provides support by granting temporary licenses to participating students), while being able to group Courses in modules, which allow the student to obtain comprehensive training in the data analysis techniques of their discipline or profession, as well as being able to accredit the competences through obtaining a specialist expert title if they manage to overcome a certain number of credits in one or more courses.
With this offer, UNIA joins other institutions that offer specialization schools in advanced data analysis software, aspiring to become a reference offer in the Hispanic-American field.
RecipientsThis Specialization Diploma is aimed at those who have previously taken and passed 12 training courses that make up the training itinerary among those listed below:Introduction to STATA 16 (2 ECTS).

For this, a document will have to be drawn up in which a data analysis will have to be incorporated, delivering the data file, the execution file and a comment on methods and results.Learning outcomes:The student must be able to design a research question or give a technical solution to a problem with the application of data analysis in the scientific field or in the business environment WITH STATA
The academic committee of the program will coordinate and supervise the process of realization of the final works, ensuring their quality, the adaptation to the ECTS credits established for this subject in the study plan and the homogeneity in the level of demand applied in the evaluation of the students.
