ModuleObjective
Analytics Principles and StrategiesAnalytics, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence are transforming business, social and governments’ way of work and way of life. This course will show how important ideas and concepts were applied in real world applications to impact the way we live and work. With the focus on real world problems and the circumstances and issues surrounding them, this course will re-establish the original objective of Analytics, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence – to serve humans and society.
Analytics Technology in Business
Technological advancement renders both opportunity and shortfall for business organisations. An appreciation of analytics and machine learning can often turn these shortfalls into opportunities and transform a business. The ability to catch up with technology is often the key for businesses to stay relevant. This course introduces the concept and technology behind analytics and how businesses can embrace this in their operations. You will gain an understanding of the fundamentals of analytics and machine learning deployed in business operations. Using programming language and other tools to perform analysis, you  will learn to process different types of data to perform suitable analysis according to your problem statement.

Learning Outcomes
  1. Understand the basic of analytics and machine learning and how they are relevant to business.
  2. Understand the elements of analytics and the steps in developing analytics capability.
  3. Construct machine learning solutions for a given problem.
  4. Manage the use of analytics and machine learning to support business decisions.
Analytics and Big Data in Business
This course presents fundamental concepts and techniques in managing and presenting data for effective data-driven decision making. Data has become integral to businesses and organisations.
