Learn to how analyze data, identify patterns, solve problems, make decisions, detect abuses of statistics, and get your point across using basic quantitative tools. Emphasis is on real-world data and applications ... this Is NOT a statistics 101 refresher course.
This course is intended for those who need practical skills and knowledge in using statistical tools and techniques for Business Analytics (BA) applications—or so-called “Exploratory Analysis.” The course will emphasize where and when the tools and procedures apply, including the inputs they rely on, as well as the end-results—or outputs—they produce. The tools and techniques will be introduced from the standpoint of their practical utility as well as the outputs they are capable of producing, rather than their mathematical structure or derivation. Hands-on exercises will be used to reinforce learning by taking advantage of the built-in statistical functions in MS Excel.
