Data Visualization

In an ever-changing world where business leaders are beginning to rely more and more on data for decision-making, the role of data presentation and visualization are becoming increasingly important. This course helps participants understand how humans process data and information. Participants also will gain a better understanding of data literacy and learn to effectively design visualizations to convey truth and meaning using data-based evidence. This course prepares participants to construct high-quality visualizations via the understanding of different types of data relationships, such as distributions, correlations, time, parts of a whole, spatial mapping and ranking. This is a practical, hands-on course; participants use Tableau and R to construct high-quality visualizations and dashboards to better inform business leaders in the managerial decision-making process.
