Data Management will give you a foundational understanding and skills to work with data. Through the use of hands-on examples, we will explore the design and implementation of the kinds of multi-user transactional databases that you are likely to routinely encounter in your future work. You will learn how to query relational databases using a powerful computer programming language called SQL, that allows you to combine relatively few operations to answer almost any data question imaginable. You will also get a practical introduction to popular data management and analytical tools such as Hadoop, MongoDB, Python, and Tableau. With the explosion in number and volume of data sources, and the increased focus on analytics and on “Big Data” in general, it is more important than ever that you develop the skills to understand, design, access and analyze data. These skills will be essential to your future as a decision maker.
