Overview

When we think of data science and analytics, gone are the days of scientists crunching numbers and speaking in jargon no-one can understand. Now, data scientists have become investigators, storytellers, and problem solvers who transform raw data into actionable insights.

Understanding how to extract, wrangle, and interpret data has never been so important and this skill set is not limited to Data Scientists. All businesses can benefit from their employees understanding Data Science and Analytics.

This one-week course will equip you with toolkits, language, and software that will help you visualise, communicate, and manipulate data. Numbers will come to life, enabling you to make data-informed and educated predictions that will make all the difference in business decisions.
