The course will teach students to use state-of-the-art Business Intelligence (BI) software to generate reports and information from data. BI software is used to inform decision-making in industries from transportation to medicine, from marketing to government, and is facilitated by rapidly increasing access to data in all industries. Students will learn to employ best practices in visualization and verbal communication as they are trained to create valuable insights from data and convey those insights to stakeholders. Additionally, the course will aid students in preparing for certification in the use of state-of-the-art BI software. (Cross-listed with ECON 4350).
