Meet Emmanuel Oluwaseyitan, a Trade Finance Specialist from Nigeria who transitioned to data science through Dataquest. Learn about his journey and how he used online learning to develop new skills in data analysis.

Before Dataquest

Emmanuel, with an MBA in Accounting and Finance, has worked in trade finance at Mikano Inte Limited for ten years. Seeing the growing importance of data in finance, he decided: “I need to enhance my skills in data analysis to stay ahead in my field.”

Choosing Dataquest

“I chose Dataquest as my compass in this new territory. In finance, my focus was on numbers and markets, not data models and algorithms. But my determination was strong. I wanted to understand and work with data in all its dimensions. Dataquest promised a journey from the basics to mastery,” he recounts, finding the platform’s methodical, self-paced learning approach perfectly aligned with his expectations.

Learning Experience at Dataquest

Emmanuel’s journey with Dataquest has led to significant skill enhancements. “I’ve gained stronger Excel skills and a better ability to think critically, especially when dealing with complex situations,” he explains. These new competencies have notably improved his work efficiency. Furthermore, Emmanuel’s dedication to continuous learning is reflected in his LinkedIn profile update. “Updating my LinkedIn profile with my new skills brought me a great sense of joy and accomplishment.”

Advice for Dataquest Learners

To those thinking about starting their own data career journey, Emmanuel offers a straightforward yet powerful piece of advice: “Commitment is key.” He emphasizes the importance of staying focused and consistent. “It’s the commitment to learning every day that makes the difference in mastering data science,” he advises.
