Data Science for Business

If a trend is identified using big data, how can it be applied to solving complex day-to-day problems? Are there implications of using this data? This learning path addresses the principles of data science to explore data privacy, regression analysis, text analytics, data visualization and predictive modeling to promote topical awareness.

About this learning path

Second guessing your decisions is not an option when the stakes are high. Every day, we as humans, make tonnes of decisions, from the point that the alarm rings in the morning, to the location of our pillows at the end of the night. Some decisions have lasting impacts, while others move us from place A to place B.  How we make these decisions and the rational driving these decisions are critical to our success.

This learning path is designed to demonstrate how to identify insights from data to support consistently making clear and rational decisions.  Courses in this learning path are case study driven, and put data manipulation, data visualization and analytical techniques in the context of the everyday to put an end to the second guess.

Come along and start your journey to receiving the following badges: Data Science for Business – Level 1 and Data Science for Business – Level 2.
