The ability to analyze data is one of the most sought-after skills in the workplace. Companies have vast amounts of data, but it's rare to have someone who can interpret that data to spot trends and make predictions.

This course gives you a basic understanding of how to analyze data in a business setting. You'll learn how to distinguish between qualitative and quantitative data, and how to process the information so that you can draw meaningful conclusions that can be used to inform strategy and decision-making.
