Topic

What does it mean?

Introduction to business analytics

  • What is analytics and why is it so important?
  • Applications of analytics
  • Different kinds of analytics
  • Various analytics tools
  • Analytics project methodology
  • Case study
In this section we shall provide you an overview into the world of analytics. You will learn about the various applications of analytics, how companies are using analytics to prosper and study the analytics cycle.

Fundamentals of R

  • Installation of R & R Studio
  • Getting started with R
  • Basic and Advanced Data types in R
  • Variable operators in R
  • Working with R data frames
  • Reading and writing data files to R
  • R functions and loops
  • Special utility functions
  • Merging and sorting data
  • Practice assignment
R is the most popular software/language for data management & statistical analysis of data. It is free and open source. This module is all about learning how to manage and manipulate data and datasets, the very first step of analytics. We shall teach you how to use the R language to work with data using a case study.

Univariate statistics in R

  • Summarizing data, measures of central tendency
  • Measures of data variability & distributions
  • Using R language to summarize data
  • Practice assignment
This is where you shall learn how to start understanding the story your data is narrating by summarizing the data, checking its variability and shape. We shall take you through various ways of doing this using the R language and also solve a real-world case study

Data visualization in R

  • Need for data visualization
  • Components of data visualization
  • Utility and limitations
  • Introduction to grammar of graphics

  • Practice assignment
Data visualization is extremely important to understand what the data is saying and gain insights in just one glance. Visualization of data is a strong point of the R software and you will learn the same in this module.

Hypothesis testing and ANOVA in R

  • Introducing statistical inference
  • Estimators and confidence intervals
  • Central Limit theorem
  • Parametric and non-parametric statistical tests

With 95% confidence we can say that there is a 75% chance, people visiting this site thrice will enroll for the course :). In this module, you learn how to create a hypothesis, statistically test it and validate it through data and present it with clear and formal numbers to support decision making.

Data preparation using R

  • Needs & methods of data preparation
  • Handling missing values
  • Outlier treatment
  • Transforming variables
  • Derived variables
  • Binning data
  • Modifying data with Base R
  • Data processing with dplyr package

  • Practice assignment
Real world data is rarely going to be given to you perfect on a platter. It will always be dirty with missing data points, incorrect data, variables needing to be changed or created in order to analyze etc. A typical analytics project will have 60% of its time spent on preparing data for analysis. This is a crucial process as properly cleaned data will result in more accurate and stable analysis. We shall teach you all the techniques required to be successful in this aspect.

Introduction to SAS

  • Moving from linear to logistic regression
  • Model assumptions and Odds ratio
  • Model assessment and gains table
  • ROC curve and KS statistic
  • Case study
Logistic regression is the work-horse of the predictive analytics world. It is used to make predictions in cases where the outcomes are dual in nature i.e. an X or Y scenario where we need to predict if X will be the case or will Y, given some data. This is a must-know technique and we shall make you comfortable with it through real world problems.
