Students of Generation Data

What is Generation Data?

At Tableau, we feel data skills are essential for the next generation of workers and business leaders. Tableau’s Academic Program seeks to arm students with the valuable analytical skills needed to help them make data-driven decisions, both academically and professionally.

What began as a blog post, the Generation Data series is now a community of student Tableau users. Learn from students like you on how they learned Tableau and found new opportunities because of their data skills.

Cultivating the Generation Data community

Students get access to Tableau for free. We interview those who want to share their data journey with us.

We learned students are using Tableau for jobs, internships, and personal passion projects.

The community keeps growing with students sharing how they learned Tableau. Add your unique story today.
