Course spotlight: Business Analytics
Businesses governments and individuals create massive collections of data as a byproduct of their activity. Increasingly data is analyzed systematically to improve decision making. We will examine how data analytics technologies are used to improve decision making. We will study the fundamental principles and techniques of mining data and we will examine real world examples and cases to place data mining techniques in context to improve your data analytic thinking and to illustrate that proper application is as much an art as it is a science.
