To start, we’ll teach you the basics. Business analytics is the process of examining large data sets – or "big data" – to uncover valuable insights. Maybe you’ll see opportunities for growth. Or discover shifts in market dynamics, and how to move forward.

To stay on top of the game, you need to understand business analytics.

In this program, you’ll learn a number of analytics and data science concepts, how they’re used, and how you can benefit from them.
