Topic: Business Analytics /Data Science
Students will learn and apply the methods and tools of business analytics /data science. The goal is to “analyze a publicly available large data set using software tools such as Tableau to gain insight to make informed decisions.” Business analytics is the application of models, methods and tools to the analysis of data to gain insight to make informed decisions.” The 3 pillars of analytics are visualization, statistics, and machine learning. We’ll focus on the first two. Students will develop the skills in data identification & preparation, project proposal development, methodology, & implementation; and, gain proficiency in Tableau, the business intelligence tool to do descriptive and predictive analytics.
