Organizations today are the lucky recipients of an overabundance of available data. How they manage these multiple data streams may impact future success. Employees with data science skills who can help their company interpret data to spot trends, note anomalies, and track changes are invaluable. A Penn State certificate in Introduction to the Science of Analyzing and Modeling Data empowers professionals to take charge of their data through data analysis, modeling, mining and manipulation. Course participants will not only be able to unlock the story behind the numbers, they will also be able to present their findings in a clear, accurate and insightful manner.
