data analysis for managers TEXT

Leverage Your Organization's Data
to Make Smarter Decisions

Organizations today are grappling with an over-abundance of data. As companies track more and more information, data sets are growing in both size and number. An organization’s ability to manage this explosion of data will be key to its future success. Managers need tools to enable them to use the data to make better decisions. They need more insightful analytics: data presented in a way that enables them to spot trends, note anomalies and track changes over time.

Course Overview

In this program we will demystify data science and apply practical approaches to real world data questions and problems. Through the exploration of data analysis, modeling, mining, and manipulation, we will teach students to unlock the story that had previously been hidden in the numbers. At the completion of this program, students will be able to present their findings in a visually appealing and accurate manner so that managers can use the reports to gain insight into their business practices.
