Data used to be the new oil, now it is the new soil because it is what businesses use to grow. Data is the underlying driver of the knowledge economy and unlike oil, can be used over and over again to extract value for businesses. This class is an introduction to the practice of data science. You will learn skills in data collection, representation, storage, analysis, and visualisation. In addition, you will learn the impact of business analytics and big data on business performance. The course helps you to combine technical and statistical skills, analytical thinking, and business acumen.
