Course description

Data Analysis is an ever-evolving discipline with lots of focus on new predictive modeling techniques coupled with rich analytical tools that keep increasing our capacity to handle big data. However, in order to chart a coherent path forward, it is necessary to understand where the discipline has come from since its inception.

The field of Business intelligence depends largely on Data analysis tools and techniques in order to inform effective decision-making. In fact, the disciplines are so intertwined that some often confuse the two. Therefore, we begin our introduction by examining the history of Business intelligence, its relationship to data analysis, and why the two are needed to help businesses deliver a complete assembly of their 'data puzzle'. This module also addresses some of the hurdles businesses face when dealing with data overload and suggests some possible solutions to the problem.

With the explosion of big data, businesses recognize there is a greater need for employing someone who is qualified to correctly analyze the data. In this module, we explore the qualifications for the data analyst as well as the analytic tools associated with the position. It is unfortunate that there is such a dearth of data analysts. With a projected shortage of 190,000 data science jobs into 2018, it is no wonder that businesses are scrambling to recruit talent.

The course content was great and I cannot say I would recommend changing anything. The only thing I would recommend from Grant is engaging the students a bit more. Other than that, he was awesome, had a good sense of humor and made all of the course content clear, effective, and relevant to real life. Thank you!

Due to a two-day course, I believed it was almost impossible to allow for the exercises. However, instructor gave us a ten minute review after each exercise where we could review his formulas. He also gave us a spreadsheet where he included the raw data and then the exercise with the formulas. Made it very simple for us to utilize these spreadsh...

I loved that this wasn't a lecture course. This was hands on right from the first few minutes of the class. It was definitely a lab/exercise-driven course.
