MBA 563 ONL - Data Toolkit

Campus: Urbana-Champaign


The ultimate goal for data analytics in business is to obtain actionable insight. In this course, you will learn to use several tools-including the most important tool, your mind--for processing business data to gain that insight. You will perform tasks including extracting, transforming and loading (ETL) data to conducting exploratory data analytics (EDA). You will also gain experience in finding patterns in the data by using machine learning (ML) algorithms. You will develop a conceptual foundation for why ML algorithms are useful and how the resulting models from those algorithms are used to find actionable insight related to business problems. In the end, you will be equipped with the skillset to evaluate when an algorithm should be used and the ability to run these algorithms with R and RStudio and communicate the results using notebooks. Completion of this course requires downloading and using certain software on specific operation systems; details can be found in the course sy
