The Data Analytics for Managers course was created by Dr. Amitabh Sinha to provide mid-level managerial professionals, as well as recent graduates in computer science, statistics, mathematics, etc., with tools to improve their basic data science skills and apply their knowledge of data analytics techniques in a business context. As co-director of the Tauber Institute for Global Operations, Dr. Sinha developed small private online courses (SPOCs) for hands-on learning in data visualization, data querying using SQL and machine learning using the Microsoft Azure ML platform. Dr. Sinha partnered with Academic Innovation to adapt these engaged learning experiences for a global audience of lifelong learners, providing opportunities to examine how companies leverage different sources of data and various analytical techniques to improve their company’s performance, discuss case studies that help illuminate the significant opportunity data science techniques provide to businesses, and actively work inside the Azure platform. The goal of this MOOC is for learners to gain the ability to conduct and interpret data science experiments.
