QST IS 823 - Analytics for Managers
This Level 2 (non-programming-based) analytics course examines how the abundance of data has transformed decision making in organizations and the strategic implications of this transformation. We explore how data are being used, ranging from the core principles of properly identifying data sources to the actual analytical methods being used to solve a wide range of business problems. Students will have some hands-on work with advanced Excel, Tableau, and two database applications, Microsoft Access and Neo4j (Neo4j is used to compare and contrast SQL and NoSQL databases in an analytics context). At the end of this course, students will have gained a big-picture perspective on business analytics as well as hands-on experience with commonly-used business analytics software.
