Course Description

While it is extremely common to hear the word "data" in business today, what is less common is an understanding of how to collect the right data and then apply it to solving business problems. In this course, you will learn foundational concepts in statistics and how to collect and interpret data while applying statistics and statistical thinking to business problems. Additionally, in the practice of business statistics, it is essential to capture accurate data but also to communicate that data clearly and effectively. You will then explore methods of presenting this type of data and try it for yourself. Lastly, it may seem far-fetched to describe numeric values collected during a business day as a story, but when quantitative data is compiled into a visual tool such as a table or graph, it can indeed tell a story about that day’s business activity. In this course you will examine how to display quantitative data through tables as well as best practices you should follow to determine which method is the best choice for communicating the data at hand.
