Data skills

27-28 March 2023 | Skills training

Data, whether big or small, are key to the current digital transformation, whether directly in business intelligence and analytics, or as the raw material for artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms. With almost all leading R&D organisations perceiving that data management should be a priority for their business, the ability to understand, interpret and leverage data in a variety of forms has become an essential skill for business professionals. Data literacy helps professionals separate useful information from background noise and enables them to take appropriate and informed actions.

This course introduces students to a core set of skills and methods needed for generating, reading, analysing and communicating data and provides them with the ability to apply them to their own projects. The course covers concepts such as probability and inference, regression and machine learning, as well as using text as data. It helps students develop a skill set that includes R programming.

This seminar is offered as part of the Executive MPA programme and in the open enrolment programme.
