Data Science Courses
The courses are rich with opportunities to practice techniques using both your own company’s existing data or a sample data set.
Understanding and Visualizing DataCOURSE ID: SHA571
In order to make important business decisions, you need all the information available.
Implementing Scientific Decision MakingCOURSE ID: SHA572
Using Predictive Data AnalysisCOURSE ID: SHA573
Modeling Uncertainty and RiskCOURSE ID: SHA574
Decision making is never as simple as we would like it to be, since rarely does a single factor alone predict an outcome. In a competitive business environment, not taking this uncertainty into account has serious costs. In this course, you’ll use foundations in probability to describe risk mathematically and incorporate those calculations into your decisions so you can take them to the next level. Working through increasingly complex modeling situations, you will learn to use estimates of probable future outcomes for Go/No-Go decisions and to run a Monte Carlo simulation allowing you to examine outcomes that vary based on multiple, interdependent decisions.
Optimization and Modeling Simultaneous DecisionsCOURSE ID: SHA575
In business, we don’t often have the luxury of making one decision at a time; instead, we usually face multiple decisions at once, in highly complex situations where each decision has potentially far-reaching impacts. In this environment, professionals need a robust, quantifiable understanding of these ripple effects in order to meet business objectives and raise the odds of decision-making success. In this course, you will create and use data models for optimizing decision making in situations where resources are constrained—and two or more decisions whose consequences interact must be made simultaneously.
