BUSN 5000: Introduction to Data Science for Business and Economics

Undergraduate course, University of Georgia, 2022

The modern world is awash in a seemingly unlimited amount of data. To harness these data for decisions starts with acquiring the raw information and ends with a report describing the outcome of some analysis. At each step, the analyst combines data with some ideas about how the world works to produce an output. BUSN 5000 will take a hands-on approach, with a focus on techniques of data preparation; descriptive, explanatory and predictive analyses; and scientific communication.
