This module helps students to join the dots between mathematics, programming, and business analysis. This module provides an introduction as well as hands-on experience in data visualization, visual analytics, and visual data storytelling. If learners have no prior knowledge or learners with basic math skills but want to apply them in data science or learners have good programming skills but lack math, this module bridges the gap between mathematics and programming. It introduces design principles for creating meaningful displays of quantitative and qualitative data to facilitate managerial decision-making in the field of business analytics. Students will know how to structure and streamline data analysis assignments; collect, prepare, and “wrangle” data, and highlight implications using visualizations and storytelling.
