About The Class:

We are creating and consuming more data than ever before and we have the ability to sift through piles of information stored on our servers, databases, computers, tablets, smartphones, and beyond. This data can be used in powerful ways to make strategic decisions that enhance our bottom line and mission. However we need to understand how to use big data and apply human intuition to harness this tool and make better decisions and predictions that make our organizations stronger.

This class will focus on developing a thorough grasp of strategies and methods for analyzing large sets of data in order to make predictions, make better decisions, and understand how data can be used as a competitive advantage. We will dive deeply into the following topics:

  • Probability
  • Statistics
  • Sampling
  • Binomial + Normal Distribution
  • Confidence Intervals
  • Linear Regression
  • Decision Analysis
Who this course is for:
  • Entrepreneurs, Managers, Students, Business Owners, Professionals
