Virtually all managerial and leadership positions in the digital economy increasingly rely on data-driven decision making. Recent studies have shown companies who adopt Data-Driven Decision Management achieve significant productivity gains over other firms.
Having a solid grasp of the end-to-end process of making effective decisions with data will give you an edge, both in performing such analyses yourself, as well as in effectively managing teams of business analysts and data scientists.
In this Business Analytics for Data-Driven Decision Making course, part of both the Digital Leadership and Digital Product Management MicroMasters programs from Boston University - BUx, you will learn the tools and techniques to become a data-driven or evidence-based manager.
You will learn the process of reframing a business question as a data question, reasoning about what data might be of assistance and how to obtain it, integrating and cleaning the data, performing the analysis, deriving and communicating insights from the analysis, and building the managerial culture to operate in this way and create competitive advantages from enterprise data.
This course is unique in the sense that it aims squarely at the needs of a manager in an analytically focused enterprise by providing both a hands-on introduction to the concepts, methods and processes of business analytics as well as an introduction to the use of analytics as the basis for creating a competitive advantage.
The Business Analytics for Data-Driven Decision Making programme is part of both Digital Leadership MicroMasters Programme and Digital Product Management MicroMasters Programme.
